De Kwekerij opts for sustainable timber-frame construction: 840 new homes for young people in Utrecht
In 2021, Machiels Building Solutions (MBS) will deliver a complete prefab façade for the De Kwekerij housing development in Utrecht East (Netherlands). With sustainability an integral part of the whole project, timber-frame construction is a perfect fit, as wood captures CO2 rather than emitting it. This is just one of the reasons why the buildings have been awarded a two-star BREEAM quality rating. MBS will be fitting the façade in front of the floors, thereby forming a single continuous structure. As the building is immediately wind-, water- and air-tight, the interior finishing work can start much faster.
Machiels Building Solutions expands its sales team
The growing interest in timber-frame construction worldwide comes as no surprise, as this is a fast and eco-friendly construction technique and also has much lower failure costs when combined with industrial prefabrication. In a bid to further harness that potential, MBS has taken on two new employees: Tom Robyns (Commercial Director) and René Oldhof (Sales Engineer - Netherlands). With their knowledge and experience, MBS will be even better placed to continue its strong growth trajectory.
Work on The Cube in Utrecht progressing faster thanks to timber-frame construction
On behalf of construction company Van Wijnen, Machiels Building Solutions (MBS) is producing sustainable timber-frame façades for The Cube in Utrecht (Netherlands), a project involving 639 student housing units and public facilities. Timber-frame construction means that the building can be wind-, water- and air-tight quicker, so the interior finishing work can begin sooner. What's more, the end result fits perfectly with the city's Healthy Urban Living approach.
