In May 2018 ZTC received the European Technical Assessment for the wood houses produced by the company. ETA certification proves the competency of ZTC to produce houses compliant with European requirements and proper use of materials in the product. Hence ZTC can now issue Declaration of Performance and affix the CE marking to its products.
Member of board of ZTC and company Cross Timber Systems Māris Avotiņš introduced the ambassador Seong-Jin HAN with the production of CLT elements and possibilities of application.
ZTC has signed a contract to build a prefab wooden house in Gardermoen, Norway. The two storey twin house will have two apartments of 100 m2 floor space and a terrace of 14 m2 each.
Ecological house built with “breathing” envelope structures act as a buffer between differing air humidity levels inside and outside. Living in optimal relative humidity can improve health, comfort, productivity nad sleep quality.
From 8 to 11 March in the exhibition Māja I 2018 ZTC will present in an interactive demonstration the new production technology that lets us provide wood prefab houses made of construction panels that stabilize indoor air humidity and temperature for a pleasant microclimate.
To understand how wooden panel houses are the best value you have to look deeper than just a comparison of material costs. Fast, lightweight and precise construction has beneficial implications on cost beyond the material.
