Energy-efficient, affordable homes
Factory-based production of wooden houses is not unusual anymore. Nowadays, a high priority is given to the quality of indoor air and protecting the structures from getting wet during construction is a must. Cross Laminated Timber panels are manufactured indoors which also reduces the amount of on-site work.
Making an architect’s vision a reality often requires a lot of work, strong professional expertise, and creative problem-solving. LapWall, who implemented the roof structure at Helsinki-Vantaa airport’s terminal 2, drew from all of these. As an extra challenge, the installation contract was carried out at night when the site was otherwise quiet.
High-quality residential construction requires expertise that stems from long-term experience and a healthy respect for tradition. Meeting the increased demands of construction and housing require modern working methods, from design to manufacturing, and an increasing number of homes are being manufactured in factory conditions.
