From Fügen to Finland

From Fügen to Finland

From the Zillertal valley, binderholz has conquered the world: a small Tyrolean sawmill has become Europe’s leading manufacturer for solid wood products and innovative timber construction solutions.

Two new sites were even recently added in far-away Finland. In order to be able to offer the new employees in Finland a pleasant working environment, binderholz started on a new office building immediately after the acquisition: a central administration unit with 37 workplaces was erected on the sawmill premises. Naturally in a wooden construction - and finished with coatings from ADLER!


In Lieksa there is now a building that shows off all the strengths of wooden construction. For instance, the quick implementation: the planning stage began in April 2016. In July the diggers started doing all the excavation work and as early as November 2016 the office premises were ready to move into. This timetable was only able to be implemented by a perfectly well-coordinated team. The binderholz Bausysteme team was responsible for the planning as well as the wooden structural design. Binderholz employees from a wide range of locations were involved in the implementation stage. The whole planning concept is based on the binderholz BBS cross laminated timber, 125 system format. This precise specification allowed construction to be done with minimal cutting waste, thus making it cost effective. All the solid wood products were delivered from the production sites in Austria and Germany to Lieksa.


When it came to coating the wooden structural elements, binderholz put their trust, once again, in tried-and-tested quality from Tyrol. The fascia made of larch on the outside is protected from the adverse weather conditions in the far north by Pullex Holzöl Natur from ADLER. For the visible wood elements made of spruce inside, ADLER Lignovit Interior UV100 in the colour Großglockner was used. The elegant whitish transparent wood finish creates a friendly, light working environment and protects the wood from unsightly yellowing. The refined parquet floor, which harmoniously rounds off the stylish impression, comes from the specialist wood store parkett+mehr, which belongs to binderholz. In just two weeks the team from parkett+mehr installed around 800 m² of wide plank flooring in knotty oak, brushed, matt finish.


Of course, it is particularly nice to work in such a great, new building. Five members of the binderholz Nordic sales staff, who previously worked at the office in Nurmes, have also moved to Lieksa. “That means the whole sales team is now concentrated in one place, resulting in considerable benefits in the collaboration within the sales team, with the other departments and in the best possible customer service,” is the positive report from binderholz about the all-round successful project.
