Short construction time

crane

Our building elements are made from cross-laminated timber (CLT). Rapid construction time is one of the advantages of using cross-laminated timber. In Ås an 8-storey block of flats was erected in 4 weeks. In Trondheim a 9-storey building was erected in 4 weeks. A detached house is “closed” in just a few hours. This creates a building in which the interior fitting work can commence very quickly. It also means that moisture problems are reduced to a minimum.
Before we progress to the shape and thickness (strength) of the elements, and any fire and sound solutions, we undertake precise, high-quality project planning work and we have the best expertise available for finding solutions.See Teknisk Ukeblad

Economy

Cross-laminated timber is a very economic solution which is able to compete with all other building methods. Apart from providing several benefits such as a great living environment and binding CO2, it also allows for freedom of design and distinctive aesthetic qualities.

Quality

Woodcon supplies complete high-quality timber solutions for all stages of the construction process. Wood is a natural building material with excellent and unique qualities. Quality is our primary focus and we provide our customers with quality at all stages, from the products themselves to the sales, project planning, assembly and delivery processes.

CLT or cross-laminated timber is basically a simple construction, please see the figure. The product is finished at our factory so that it can be erected directly on site as a finished element with openings for windows and doors and the installation of cables and pipes, etc.

Before we progress to the shape and thickness (strength) of the elements and the fire-safety and soundproofing properties, we undertake precise, high-quality project planning work and we have the best expertise available for finding solutions.

Wood is nature’s own construction material which reproduces itself, binds CO2, creates a great living environment and is excellent from an aesthetic point of view. There is a feel good factor about being inside a wooden building! Our products are made from cross-laminated timber and glued laminated timber.

Deliveries

To date we have supplied timber for 8-12-storey buildings, detached houses, a radar station on Svalbard
and cowsheds. Our deliveries consist of complete timber solutions.

Solution

Woodcon has acquired top expertise throughout, both within the Woodcon organisation and through its collaboration agreement in Norway and Austria. We know logistics, we understand all about statistics, fire safety and soundproofing and are able to find the optimal solutions. On the transport front we are also working actively to find optimal environmental solutions and the deliveries we receive from Austria normally arrive by train.

When communicating with our customers our motto is to be quick and clear. We provide them with solutions quickly and we are clear about what the best solution is. We are also clear about what our customers need to do in order to obtain the best solution.

Woodcon is unique on the market since we have the expertise required for delivering a total concept. This ensures that our customers receive the best solutions and that there is just one supplier controlling all the stages involved from start to finish.

The supply chain for timber solutions can be divided into several stages. These are shown in this schematic diagram:
In principle the sales stage is simple, but at Woodcon we place considerable focus on ensuring that sales should also represent the start of securing optimal, efficient and total deliveries.

We have our own solutions experts within our organisation, but we also make use of competent partners during this process. Høyer Finseth is one of our partners in Norway, but we also make use of top expertise from Austria. Our timber products are supplied by Stora Enso in Austria. They have two factories and excellent capacity and they supply top quality, precision-engineered products.

Our own organisation is responsible for project management! Transport is also an important aspect of this process and we strive to focus on environment-friendly solutions and using trains as much as possible.Our Norwegian and foreign collaboration companies which are responsible for installation or assembly, although Woodcon is also involved in these stages and we engage in close follow-up at building sites.

Projects

We have many projects which have now been completed, but we have selected just a few of them here as examples. We can supply a complete project list for anyone who might be interested in obtaining full details.
