Optimisation of water resources
The construction of a wooden house involves less water consumption compared with traditional concrete buildings. This is due to the use of dry processes and natural materials and efficient water treatment systems.
Dry construction involves prefabricating the components in the factory and transporting them to the construction site, reducing the consumption of water required to mix the concrete. In addition, natural materials such as wood require less water for their production than materials used in concrete construction, such as concrete and steel.
As well as saving water, this sustainable approach also helps to reduce the environmental impact of the construction site.
The SPECIFIC STRENGTH of wood, i.e. the ratio between the strength and weight of the material, is high.
In fact, compared with its impressive strength properties, wood is very light.
This characteristic makes wooden constructions particularly suitable for seismic zones.
Seismic stress, as is well documented, is proportional to the mass of the building. The greater the mass, the heavier the load in the event of an earthquake. It follows that in earthquakes, a building constructed of masonry or reinforced concrete will be subject to far greater stress than if it were made of wood.
Water and fire = expertise and experience
The resistance of timber structures to humidity and fire is determined solely by technical expertise and attention to detail.
The company’s design and construction experience is therefore key to the creation of structures of the highest possible standards.
This is a differentiating factor that ABITO HOLZ guarantees its customers.
Energy savings and sustainability
Abito Holz has always adhered with the principles of sustainable construction and has made respect for the environment its raison d’être, starting with the raw material itself: wood, which originates only from responsibly managed forests. The worksite of a wooden building has a significantly shorter lifespan than a traditional construction site, and this means that it consumes less energy and produces less waste for disposal.
Energy savings are guaranteed first and foremost by the use of walls with high performance thermal insulation and the installation of high-efficiency systems that guarantee low consumption and utilise renewable energies thanks to the use of photovoltaic, solar and heat pump systems.
The building’s load-bearing structure is made entirely of wood and employs a prefabricated panelling system with load-bearing elements and infills for the walls. The building technology is based on dry systems that allow for more precise constructions as many components are manufactured in the factory and assembled on site. Particular attention is paid to acoustics, which are essential for ensuring the quality of the work and the wellbeing of inhabitants.
