Sweden is in dire need of more housing. Building with wood offers an attractive equation: shorter construction time + lower cost = more housing, faster.
For decades, Sweden banned wooden houses higher than two storeys due to the risk of fire. Today’s wood is high tech and with lightweight construction technology, the risk of fire is almost negligible. With new building regulations, tall residential buildings are a fast growing construction trend.
For years, White has been at the forefront of the wood building revival. Our research is well recognised in the field and we partake in several projects to push limits and test possibilities. Working alongside with the country’s leaders in industrial and resource-efficient construction, we design growing numbers of environmentally-friendly residential buildings.
