Prefabricated Construction with Engineered Wood Materials from SWISS KRONO
In 2018, timber construction was used for 17.8 % of the new buildings erected in Germany, and its share of the market is continuing to rise. Due to the increased demand for more housing the construction industry is optimistic about its future.
Business is therefore good for the construction industry, which is optimistic about its future. And timber and engineered wood products are enjoying ever-greater popularity. They have finally emerged from the shadow of other building materials, and rightly so.
Besides their environmental advantages, modern wood-based materials have many favourable properties that make them especially well-suited for construction. For example, today’s versions help prevent fires from spreading and are acoustically insulating. More and more owner-builders, architects and contractors are therefore opting for timber and wood-based materials.
There are now numerous timber houses that impressively illustrate astonishing capabilities of wood for realising a vast range of architectural possibilities.
