Our approach prioritizes energy efficiency, swift construction, and quality finishes, ensuring a successful process.
Today, traditional construction systems are a significant environmental pollution factor, being responsible for high CO2 emissions worldwide. In contrast, Mass Timber emerges as an alternative for more sustainable building. By using wood as a structural material instead of conventional materials like steel or concrete, carbon emissions are significantly reduced, and it contributes to forest regeneration.

We focus on the continuous innovation of our projects, always seeking new ways to enhance the quality and sustainability of our constructions.
We adapt to the specific needs of each project, collaborating closely with our clients to find the best solution.
Environmental and social responsibility
We strive to offer a sustainable solution to meet housing demand.
Would you like to train with us?
At Enkel Group we believe that providing and sharing information is essential to raise awareness about new technologies and ways of building. That is why we created different lectures and exhibitions that toured the country providing training on construction with Mass Timber, in collaboration with Arboreal and Rothoblaas.
The structural use of Mass Timber allows for a significant acceleration in construction times, as well as a reduction in associated unforeseen issues.
Our system is based on low environmental impact materials from renewable sources.
Strategic planning allows for the optimization of resources.
The use of planning and logistics as fundamental tools for easier and faster construction.
Benefits of building
with MASS TIMBER
Allows the buyer to obtain a more accurate estimate.
Saves time on the job site by improving efficiency and productivity.
Lower labor costs and reduction of waste during the construction process.
Saves on energy consumption costs.
Raw material obtained from renewable resources.
With care from the design phase, these types of wooden constructions have the same lifespan as any other type of construction or even longer.
Construction costs vary based on location, project size, complexity, material availability, and labor expertise. However, broadly speaking, the following attributes make building with Mass Timber a cost-effective and feasible option for sustainable and efficient construction projects:
Manufacturing and Construction Efficiency: Mass Timber elements, such as Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) panels, are produced under controlled and precise conditions in factories. This prefabrication leads to higher production efficiency, shortening on-site construction time and minimizing waste.
Faster Assembly: Prefabricated Mass Timber components are lightweight and user-friendly, expediting their assembly on the construction site. Speedier component assembly reduces on-site labor time, and consequently, associated costs.
Lower Carbon Footprint: Wood is a renewable and sustainable material that stores carbon throughout its lifespan. Producing laminated wood requires less energy than other materials like concrete or steel, leading to fewer greenhouse gas emissions. This sometimes translates into tax incentives or sustainable construction certifications.
Reduced Structural Weight: Wood is lighter than other construction materials, such as concrete or steel. This means the foundations and supporting structure can be simpler and, thus, more cost-effective.
Decreased Need for Heavy Machinery: Since wood can be transported and installed using smaller equipment, there’s less reliance on heavy machinery at the construction site, potentially translating to financial savings.
Long-term Maintenance Savings: Wood can adequately shield against external elements and wear, resulting in lower long-term maintenance costs compared to other materials that are more prone to corrosion.
Energy Efficiency: Buildings made with Mass Timber can be highly energy-efficient. Wood possesses natural insulating properties, which help reduce heating and cooling costs over the building’s lifetime.
– Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions: Traditional construction accounts for 38% of all CO2 emissions (UN, 2019). According to UNEP 2015, traditional construction is responsible for up to 40% of these total emissions.
– Low energy consumption during the transformation stage from raw material to finished product.
– Wood serves as a carbon storage medium. We can achieve a reduction of 2.0 tons of CO₂ for every cubic meter of wood used.
– With this system, we construct energy-efficient buildings that allow for future energy savings.
In case of fire, the wood forms a charred surface around it, providing protection to the internal structure.
