Multi Family

The distribution facility of the Hanover public utility company, Üstra, in Germany is building a residential estate made up of 139 solid wood construction rental apartments and a nursery school on a former tram depot site. Six 5-storey tower blocks and three 3- to 4-storey terraced buildings were built using 5 400 m³ of CLT by Stora Enso. Thanks to this project, 5 700 tons of carbon dioxide can be saved or stored by the wood – that’s the equivalent of 40 million car kilometres. Completion is planned for October 2019.
