A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH TO BUILDING
A typical home built in the UK costs over £1,500 a year to heat. Trivselhus homes help homeowners reduce their energy consumption and minimise waste.
The Trivselhus Climate Shield® works to protect the environment and fight climate change by reducing carbon emissions. Created with sustainably sourced wood and recyclable raw materials, our cutting edge construction enables developers to deliver A-rated homes in a cost-effective way.
"At Mole we have long seen timber as the perfect constructional material; low in embodied energy, easy
to transport, forgiving to work with, and suited
to quick and clean construction"
Meredith Bowles, Mole Architects
FUTURE PROOF CONSTRUCTION
Future building regulations look set to demand increasingly low energy homes in the UK. Trivselhus Climate Shield® forms an airtight shell, so that designers can easily achieve compliance with existing and new building regulations and the Fabric Energy Efficiency standard.
There is no need to compromise on the beauty and elegance of buildings. Our fabric first construction techniques free developers and architects from reliance on costly bolt-on renewable technologies.
Trivselhus is a wholly owned subsidiary of Södra – the largest forestry cooperative in Sweden. Södra is an economic association with a membership base of 51,000 forest owners in southern Sweden.
Since its inception the Södra forest industry group members have demonstrated a wholehearted commitment to ethical forestry, with an active consideration for natural and cultural values and social issues.
The highest pedigree timber from these sustainably managed forests is used by Trivselhus. Swedish slow-grown softwood is the best that money can buy. The relatively slow growth produces straighter, stronger and longer-lasting wood than that available from faster-growing trees. As a result it is highly sought after and Södra supplies timber products worldwide.
We are proud of the green credentials of our parent company. Södra places the environment at the heart of forest management. It believes that sustainable forests mean long-term profit - so responsible forestry is an environmental imperative and an economic necessity.
Södra promotes ethical forestry by setting challenging environmental targets for the various parts of the company. Södra’s main environmental targets are to reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide to air emissions. It also actively promotes careful soil and water management and works hard to achieve excellent standards of workplace safety.
