Timber in a
in engineered timber construction
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.

Building with wood
Natural, sustainable, versatile
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.

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.

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.”
