Systimber interlocking wood construction system

Brief description of services

Systimber uses certified European softwood for new buildings, renovation and conversion. The materials are pure, and not mixed. The pieces are connected with a mechanical system. Assembly, disassembly and re-assembly are lightning fast, and no water is required. Moreover, the system is installed locally.

Why is the product or service circular?

The Systimber interlocking wood construction system is an innovative wood construction technique in which all elements are connected mechanically. Structures built with Systimber can be disassembled and rebuilt elsewhere.

Which circular strategies are applied?

  • Reduce total amount of materials: Design for shared or multiple use.
  • Reduce amount of virgin inputs: Choose rapidly-renewable raw materials (European softwood, PEFC).
  • Maximise the reusability of a product or component: The entire structure can be disassembled, moved and rebuilt elsewhere.
  • Maximise the reusability or recyclability of material: The individual elements can also be reused or recycled. For example, the steel spacers can be used indefinitely to build interlocking wood structures. The wood can also be reused.

What are the benefits for purchasers?

The structure can be planned in great detail, which allows a clear overview of the building costs to be drawn up. You enjoy the benefits of rapid construction, a healthy living environment (vapour permeable), and the beautiful natural finish of the wood.
