Learning in a healthy environment

Schools made of
DERIX wood

Schoolchildren learn more easily in a pleasant environment that promotes concentration. If solid wood is used in the construction of a school, this promotes a healthy room atmosphere and balanced humidity. Exposed wood surfaces are natural and aesthetic. Such a learning environment has a positive effect on the children’s behaviour and facilitates their learning. At the same time, these positive influences can also strengthen teachers’ motivation to work.

Why build schools
with DERIX wood?

Our solid wood building elements have a positive effect on the room atmosphere in schools. This in turn increases the children’s ability to concentrate and productivity. Learn more about the many advantages of timber construction for school buildings.

Robust and natural surfaces

Wood is a natural material that has a positive effect on the room atmosphere. In schools, this can create attractive and durable surfaces that are easy to maintain.

Better ability
to concentrate

Our solid wood elements ensure a healthy indoor climate in the school building. This improves the children’s ability to concentrate and their willingness to work, as well as that of the teachers.

Learning effect

The children come into contact with the sustainable material at an early age through the school’s visible wooden construction. The topic of sustainability is thus omnipresent in the school and provides an excellent practical basis for further reflection on the topic of environmental protection.

High quality
and aesthetics

The high quality of our wooden constructions, the aesthetics of the natural material and the balancing properties of wood create a pleasant atmosphere in the school and thus motivate learning and working.


The construction method with wood creates ecological and potentially circular school buildings that contribute considerably to climate protection.

Fast availability due to
short construction time

The high level of prefabrication of the timber construction elements and the dry construction method result in a short construction time. This makes your school quickly available and ready for use.


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.

Wooden module construction

The timber modular construction method makes fast and sustainable building possible. We prefabricate three-dimensional wooden room cells in the factory, which are then assembled on site. From planning to production to the turnkey building – get to know DERIX modular construction.

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.
