Past is the building material of the future

Tradition with wood. Experience passed on, and knowledge that evolved.

Christof Weissenseer, CEO Weissenseer

Knowledge and experience characterize the history of Weissenseer. Since its founding in the 1930s by the grandfather of the current owner and managing director, the company has been working on the building material wood. At the beginning, classical carpentry constructions were still in focus, later the element construction for wooden houses and multi-storey timber construction came into focus.

Facts

Thoughtful system

The construction allows a thermal bridge-free assembly of the prefabricated elements on the site. An insulating layer integrated in the wooden construction allows smaller wall thicknesses than comparable solid walls, thus more effective area with the same external dimensions. Cool in summer, warm in winter – the right climate for every season.

Comfort included

Due to the uniform surface temperature of the enclosing components, a controlled exchange of air and a permanent removal of moisture and odors, buildings in the passive house standard offer unsurpassed comfort. Not only allergy sufferers appreciate the low-dust, condensate, mildew and pollen-free air.

Fast and on time

The modular design of Weissenseer buildings and “Intelligent Skins” enables maximum prefabrication in the WCB factory with proven quality. On site, only the joining of the elements takes place. As a result, the shortest possible construction times and the highest punctuality are realized.

Energy and resources

Passive houses are designed for a particularly low primary energy requirement. The use of wood as a building material also enables a sustainable circular economy in the sense of the Cradle to Cradle philosophy. A big step towards a waste-free economy using health-promoting and environmentally friendly substances.

Experience and expertise

Specializing in timber construction for around 90 years, Weissenseer is one of the innovation drivers in passive house construction with proactive research and development. With projects such as the World Champion House ‘LISI’ or the floating ‘Autarc Home’, the company has caused a worldwide sensation.

Legal requirements

Energy efficiency and ecological aspects are becoming more and more important in buildings – as legislators see it. From 2020, the energy standard of almost zero energy buildings will be mandatory for all new buildings in Europe. Requirements that Weissenseer has long since fulfilled with its innovative timber construction solutions.
