High-tech material with potential for growth
Besides being the perfect material for digital construction, wood offers many other impressive advantages. Wooden constructions protect against sunlight and rain for an almost unlimited lifespan. Wood is also resistant to harsh substances. As a result, our support structures for storing salt and other chemical agents have magnificently withstood the test of time. Wooden constructions’ robustness and resistance to corrosion make them low-maintenance and cost-effective.
The light weight of wood belies its extraordinary stability. A wooden rod hanging vertically could reach five kilometres in length before breaking under its own weight. In proportion to its weight, wood therefore matches steel in terms of its breaking strength. Contemporary architecture, with its complex free forms and high-rise buildings, shows just what this sustainable construction material can achieve.

Having spent 140 years working on complex timber constructions, we have a wealth of experience to provide you with the optimum engineering solution.
Hard to beat
Although a combustible material, large workpieces of laminate wood prove determinedly fire-resistant. Whereas steel buckles, a wooden support remains undamaged below the charred surface, even at much higher temperatures. What’s more, wooden constructions are earthquake-resistant, as the material is lighter and more elastic than its conventional counterparts.
You benefit from our proven engineering expertise in all projects – from the design and planning of individual supporting structures to intricate building complexes. The precisely coordinated timing of processes and industrial production ensure your project runs smoothly from start to finish.
