Technology

The 21st century has been hailed as the timber age by world’s leading architects and engineers (after concrete and steel dominance in the 20th and 19th century respectively). A brand new product has emerged – the engineered wood. Nowadays products from engineered wood are made according to relevant construction standards and strictly defined procedures. It is possible to manufacture finger-jointed boards (the so called lamellas) of unlimited length. Then we can take these lamellas and glue (i.e. laminate) them one above the other to create virtually unlimited elements in terms of height. Subsequently, we can reach for cross laminated timber (CLT) for building even greater structures. In the end, the combination of these timber products allow the designers to create large-scale and multi-storey buildings.

When incorporated into precise solutions, timber products give us the chance to build almost any kind of structure. Starting from umbrella roofs, garden pergolas, roof trusses through single and multi-family houses, sports halls, swimming pools, commercial and industrial facilities to multi-storey residential buildings reaching even over 20 floors and 80m high. Large projects require certified materials, precise CNC woodworking as well as prefabrication and modularity.

This is the standard we work in – using solely certified materials from reputable and reliable manufacturers. We won’t risk low-quality products or goods without appropriate certificates. We are able to process all of the following product groups with CNC machines into ready-to-assemble components and even into commercial modules. In the face of constantly increasing labour costs, time and quality requirements, there is no other direction than prefabrication and modularity.
