Same Cost

Many projects that have attempted industrialization have not succeeded in reducing the costs of traditional construction, and there is a perception that wood construction is more expensive than traditional construction.

The reasons for these perceptions are twofold: first, the necessary logics of industrialization have not been applied in the design, and second, many constructions have not used efficient structures and processes.

At Woodea, we get involved in the early stages of the project and deploy the best teams to ensure maximum benefits from industrialized construction and the use of technical wood.

Less Uncertainty

An industrialized process has three advantages:

1. A significant part of the work is done in the workshop, where working conditions are more favorable and less exposed to weather conditions.
2. On-site installation and, consequently, the overall project, significantly reduce timelines. Less time means less uncertainty.
3. The precision of wood and industrialized systems is much superior to traditional construction.

At Woodea, we embrace radical transparency, proposing an open-book work system with real-time monitoring of the project’s progress.

Shorter Construction Times

Among the benefits of industrialized construction in technical wood, the reduction of execution times stands out, reducing the cost significantly.

These reductions are possible thanks to early intervention in the design phases, actively collaborating with the architect in optimizing the model in the preliminary or even pre-feasibility stages.

Low Environmental Impact

The constructions we propose have very low environmental impact, offering many advantages such as easier financing, access to new funds, licensing advantages, and higher valuations in some tenders.

Our construction system involves:

– Substituting a significant part of steel and concrete, greenhouse gas generators, with wood, which even after being placed on-site continues to absorb carbon and remains a reservoir of it.
– Reducing timelines means disturbances to neighbors persist for a shorter time.
– Less noise pollution: the majority of the work is done “off-site,” outside the construction site.

– Lower environmental pollution. A notable reduction in the dust generated by traditional construction (trenching, bulk material unloading, debris).
– Less construction waste. In traditional construction, one-third of what enters the construction site exits as debris in containers.
– Complete circularity of the main material. Once the building’s useful life is over, it is reusable countless times.

Enjoying the Work

Both internally and externally.

Internally, our purpose makes us enjoy day-to-day work.

Externally, we bid farewell to the culture of contradiction and endless negotiations. Collaborative work and radical transparency allow us to align our goals as a construction company with the developer, designers, and subcontractors, assuming that we are working on a common project and that quality and success depend on all participants.
