To address the increasing demand for affordable housing, while committing to sustainable construction, binderholz and Swietelsky have entered a collaboration to come up with solutions.

Swietelsky is a construction company based in central and eastern Europe. It will provide binderholz advice on the construction projects, and offer the entire project from a single source and enables both consortium and general contractor contracts. In this way, industrial production ensures sustainable timber construction at competitive prices, even in multi-storey residential buildings.

binderholz has brought an individually plannable system building solution made of industrially prefabricated solid wood components for multi-storey residential construction called b_solution onto the market.

According to binderholz, every b_solution building project is converted into a 3D model including system details and equipment information. Production of the b_solution system components takes place directly from this digital twin on the automated production line at the binderholz site in Hallein, Austria.

The realisation of b_solution projects also requires conventional construction services for things like foundations, garage floors, outdoor facilities, access or interior finishing services. This is where Swietelsky comes in with its range of services as a full-service construction provider, not least as a financially strong and reliable general contractor.

Karl Weidlinger, CEO of Swietelsky, commented: “By cooperating with binderholz, we are improving our performance, especially when it comes to standardised and large-volume residential construction. Our own activities in other areas of timber and hybrid construction will remain unaffected and will continue to be offered under the SWIEtimber brand as well as by Swietelsky subsidiaries.”

At the moment, the company intends to concentrate on the Austrian market. However, an expansion of the offer across the borders is also within reach.
