Timber in a
new dimension

Wood is the building material of the future. Its use is steadily increasing. This growing popularity is not only due to its structural and physical advantages. The important contribution that wood can make as a building material in coping with current challenges facing society as a whole is increasingly making it the material of choice.

New dimensions
in engineered timber construction

Building with wood has a climate policy dimension, because wood is the only building material that binds CO2, thus removing it from the atmosphere and actively counteracting global warming. In addition, our use of wood from sustainable forestry conserves our resources, because wood grows back and can also be used in a circular fashion for the construction of a new building at the end of a building’s life.
 
The positive effects that timber construction has on the climate and the environment are complemented by the aspect of healthy living: the natural material wood has a moisture-balancing effect and thus improves the indoor air. All people who spend time in wooden buildings benefit from this.
The aesthetic appearance of the natural material and its enormous flexibility round off these advantages and further increase the attractiveness of the building material: with wood, countless architectural designs can be implemented in a high-quality manner. Whether structural systems with huge spans, high-rise buildings made of solid wood or modular hotels made of wood – the possibilities are endless.

Our
customer testimonials

Working successfully
across borders with Derix.

The expertise in this big-thinking family business enabled the timely delivery of the customised building elements for 200 prefabricated hotel rooms, so that they could be installed on site in just two weeks. We were particularly impressed by the company’s adaptability: in no time at all, the standard product was adapted to the special specification of supplying light, knotless silver fir as the surface. A logistical feat in these quantities that was solved in a virtuoso manner.

Kathrin Hanf • architect-director at SeARCH bv Amsterdam, NL

The care in production and
execution exceeded the most secret wishes.

When we decided on a wooden building in the design process for the new head office of Triodos Bank NL, no one had any idea of the new dimensions this would entail. For everyone involved, it was new territory and sometimes very uncomfortable. In the DERIX-Group we found a partner who, thanks to its many years of experience, was able to give the parties involved comfort at all levels, in a situation that was uncomfortable for them. Not only did we receive excellent advice, but the care taken in production and execution surpassed even the most secret wishes. Particularly pleasant was the experience of working not just with one company, but with a “timber family”. A family business that has incorporated and internalised the “wood way” into their DNA for decades. The DERIX family.

Thomas Rau • Architect and founder of Turntoo and RAU

We have enjoyed many years of
successful cooperation with the DERIX-Group.

“We have been working successfully with the DERIX-Group for many years. I particularly appreciate the reliability and the competent exchange in partnership during the planning and implementation of the projects. The high quality and accuracy of fit with which the components are manufactured is worth its weight in gold and, in addition to a high-quality result, leads above all to short construction times. Due to the excellent results and the good mutual basis of trust, I always enjoy working with the DERIX-Group.”

Dr. Rüdiger Schmitz • Managing Director, Schmitz Engineering Company Ltd.
