Setra supplies timber frames for Cederhusen
Published on : Monday, June 22, 2020
Wood products company Setra is supplying the timber frames for Folkhem’s housing development Cederhusen in Stockholm. With Setra’s crosslam factory now up and running, Stockholm and Mälardalen have access to locally produced building solutions in wood.
Setra is supplying the cross-laminated timber frames for Cederhusen, one of the Sweden’s largest housing development in mass timber. This will be Setra’s first major delivery of crosslam structural panels from its brand new factory in Långshyttan, around two hours from Stockholm.
“It’s fantastic to have been entrusted with supplying such a large and interesting project with such a clear environmental profile. The whole Cederhusen concept makes an excellent fit with our values, and it’s a good example of how the construction industry is starting to turn to timber,” says Daniel Halvarsson, Setra’s EVP Building solutions and Components.
“Seeing our work on strategic investments for climate-smart products come to fruition is incredibly satisfying,” says Olle Berg, EVP Market and Business Development at Setra.
Cederhusen is being built above the tunnels for the E4/E20 motorway, thus connecting Stockholm and Solna. The project, Stockholm’s first inner city district in wood, comprises four apartment blocks rising up 10–13 floors, with crosslam walls, shafts and floor structures making up the structural frame.
