Society must go through immense changes in the years to come

Our industry is no exception, and we intend to lead the way with a circular business model, and sustainable buildings as a solution for both society and the environment. Our ambition is to become one of the most sustainable companies in the industry and take the lead in our field.

We are of Nordic origin and have 30 years of experience in a circular construction concept. We provide sustainable buildings that can adapt to the needs of people and the planet including sourcing climate-smart raw materials, resource-efficient production, product innovation, and ethical business practice throughout the whole value chain. That is how we build adaptable solutions for sustainable societies.

Our buildings create social sustainability 

In a fast-paced world, future needs are uncertain and can change fast. Our solutions help our customers and societies to plan for and quickly adapt to unexpected needs like population growth, urbanization, increased number of children in school and daycare, a growing elderly population, and renovation needs among an aging building stock. Without compromising on quality. A good indoor environment is key and our buildings create excellent conditions for students, patients, employees, and any other users in need of facilities.  

Reinventing the construction industry and pushing it towards circularity

For more than 30 years, we have developed a system where our building modules run through seven phases: product development, production, planning, delivery, use phase and reuse. Nothing is overproduced, and everything is made to circulate and be used over and over again. When a building has reached its end, it is primarily get sold or donated to find a purpose elsewhere.

By providing circular buildings that can adapt to people’s needs, with concern for environmental issues, we enable societies to become more resilient and sustainable.
