Wood as a building material has recently been experiencing a well-deserved revival. Its versatility as a material has long been known but its significance as a renewable resource has only been re-discovered in recent years.
Until now almost exclusively softwoods were used in timber construction. To process hardwoods as building material used to be too complicated and too expensive.
At Pollmeier, we have changed that. With the aid of applied science we were able to develop a completely new process technology, which allows us to economically produce top-quality laminated veneer lumber from European beech for structural applications. We call it “BauBuche” and we use only raw materials from local and sustainably managed forests in its production.
The tree is rotary peeled in one of the most modern production facilities in Europe and transformed into a high-tech material with hardly any loss in value of the material. This is carried out in only one production line. BauBuche includes boards and beams for structural timber construction as well as panels for furniture and interior design.
With its exceptionally high strength BauBuche allows structures with significantly slimmer dimensions, compared to softwood materials. The high surface quality makes BauBuche ideally suited for visible construction elements. And the cost-efficient manufacturing technology places structures using BauBuche at the same price level as conventional softwood structures.
Sustainability, innovation, aesthetics and cost-efficiency come together beautifully in BauBuche.
