Any kind of house or building, since the type and finishes are independent of the structure: rustic or modern, seaside or mountain, traditional or futuristic. The exterior finishes will depend on personal preferences: the walls and ceilings can be covered in wood, stone, porcelain, plaster, glass, slate, concrete, etc. You decide what you want the house of your dreams to be like and we make it come true.

Times vary depending on the size and type of house. The difference comes mainly from the difference in construction time of the timber structure which tends to take a maximum of 1 week. Once finalised, the procedure is the same as for any other type of house, taking a total of between 4 to 6 months.

Yes. Thanks to the BIM methodology we can obtain the necessary information about the house and illustrate the whole edification process so that there are no deviations or surprises during the construction phase, which allows us to have comprehensive control of costs and implementation times.

The main difference is that modular or prefabricated homes do not allow a made to measure personalisation of the project for the customer or for the structure as the spaces cannot be distributed differently depending on the each person’s needs.

Timber has a myriad of technical qualities with respect to other materials: greater resistance, durability, adaptability, excellent static properties, thin components that are space saving, perfect thermal insulation, good acoustics etc… And above all due to its low cost and easy assembly, you get a greater return on the investment on your house.

Timber is an extraordinary natural material, which in our case is sourced from sustainable forestry. It is an ecological and renewable material for a number of reasons: it offers a simple way of reducing CO2 emissions by acting as a carbon drain and its controlled extraction benefits forests by ensuring their continued existence and optimising their condition by avoiding fires, tree diseases, etc.

Timber is also a renewable material that we can recycle and use indefinitely. Its transformation process requires minimal energy consumption and, as it is an organic material, its waste is biodegradable.

Timber is interesting mainly because it has excellent properties as a thermal insulator: its airy and porous internal structure avoids sudden changes in temperature, reducing the need to warm up or cool down the space and thus helping save energy.

An external timber wall can be just half the width of a brick or concrete wall, and still provide twice as much thermal insulation.

Timber is a very good acoustic insulator because its lignin and cellulose-based composition absorbs a large part of the energy waves that it receives, thereby reducing noise pollution and phenomena such as reverberation. The insulating power of a 10cm solid timber wall is equivalent to that of a 160cm concrete wall.

A cross laminated timber building, when it has been planned, built, and suitably protected against humidity and meteorological agents can last for centuries. Some concrete homes are ready to be torn down after 40 years; in countries in northern Europe we found timber homes that are still being inhabited after 200 years.

No. Usually timber is used as a structural element of the home and is subjected to conservation treatments necessary to preserve it from potentially damaging agents. One fundamental precaution to take when treating timber for construction is humidity content. The timber used has a humidity content of 12% (+/- 2%), where 19% is the limiting ratio below which timber is almost immune to attacks from insects and fungus.

No, not at all, despite the fact they are generally believed to be more flammable. Timber maintains its load-bearing stability for longer than steel for example and offers greater resistance to fire than other materials due to its low thermal conductivity. The behaviour of timber is predictable and it burns very slowly, while a metal structure will quickly collapse, whereas in concrete, cracks may form for which the only solution may be to tear down the house.

Yes. Our offices are in Barcelona but our area of activity extends throughout the Spanish mainland and islands.
