Timber construction

Kaden Klingbeil ArchitektenKaden Klingbeil ArchitektenTimber construction methods can be used in virtually all construction areas. Application areas range from single to multi-storey residential buildings and multi-story commercial and industrial buildings, to roof and hall construction in the commercial and public area. Construction methods include block construction, panel construction, timber frame construction, frame construction and special construction methods. Timber construction methods can also be used to build special structures such as bridges and towers.

Hüttemann Holz GmbH & Co. KGHüttemann Holz GmbH & Co. KGModern timber construction is based on high-quality building components made of wood. These include various refined solid wood products and wooden work materials. Such wood products and structures feature a high level of technical performance, are reliable and have a long service life. Modern timber construction methods can achieve the highest standards of energy efficiency. One example of this type is the passive house standard. Timber construction methods meet all requirements for heat insulation, sound insulation and fire protection. Among other things, generally short construction periods also ensure that timber-based construction projects can be implemented in a cost-effective manner. In addition, timber houses feature a very comfortable living climate, and they lend a particularly representative character to public and commercial buildings. In addition, timber buildings feature excellent energy, ecological and sustainability balance sheets.

Because of its long tradition in timber construction, which dates back hundreds of years, Germany's industrial and technical timber construction and timber engineering is in a class of its own globally with regard to know-how, technology and architecture.


Numerous inventions and reference objects demonstrate the structural and design-related performance and innovation capacities of the German timber construction sector. Timber construction "Made in Germany" has an excellent reputation around the globe.
