Residential buildings
Better living with wood

Residential buildings
with DERIX wood

Fast and economical implementation with simultaneous high quality – these are important requirements for residential construction. Thanks to the high degree of prefabrication, structural timber engineering makes it possible to build high-quality residential buildings with serial effects. Furthermore, you build ecologically and healthily with timber and gain space in the net area due to the narrow supporting structures.

Why build residential buildings
with timber elements from DERIX?

With our timber elements, you not only build sustainable and healthy homes, but you can also easily implement serial floor plans and complete your building quickly. At the same time, you gain more net floor space thanks to the slim wall constructions. Discover all the advantages for residential construction.

Economic construction

DERIX timber structures are delivered to the construction site heavily prefabricated and are assembled there immediately. This shortens the construction time on site. In addition, the exact machine prefabrication offers excellent possibilities to implement serial floor plans precisely and reliably – a good basis for economical residential construction.

Gaining space

Wood is an extremely load-bearing building material. Due to its excellent static properties and its comparatively low dead weight, wall constructions can be implemented much slimmer than with conventional building materials. This results in an enormous gain in space.


DERIX wooden building components consist of dry materials. The problem of building moisture therefore does not exist with buildings made of wood: you have a comfortable and healthy indoor climate in your flats right from the start.

Healthy living

Due to its properties as a breathing building material, wood ensures a healthy indoor climate, which is particularly important for residential buildings. Wood creates a pleasant atmosphere and enables a more peaceful sleep.


Residential buildings become ecological and potentially circular real estate through timber construction. Contribute to climate protection with this sustainability and equip yourself for sustainability ratings according to ESG requirements.

Fast availability due to
short construction time

Due to the great depth of planning and the short construction time of our timber elements, the building is quickly available for you.

High quality
and aesthetics

Benefit from high visual and design quality and aesthetics in residential construction. We offer different variants of surface design.

Funding opportunities

Various subsidy options are available for housing construction with wood. In NRW, for example, every kilogram of wood used in social housing is subsidised. Other federal states also offer various funding programmes.


X-LAM element construction

Whether roof, ceiling or wall – X-LAM can be used in a variety of ways. Our X-LAM element construction gives you great freedom in building design. The flexibly usable elements made of cross laminated timber are custom-made for you and can be assembled quickly and easily.

Sustainable building with wood

Wood is a renewable and natural raw material that stores CO2 and thus relieves the environment. Buildings made of wood thus have a positive effect on the atmosphere and always remain a source of raw materials due to the reusability of wood.
