Timber Grows with You

    Wood is a naturally renewable raw material that only requires solar energy and water for its production. Harvesting and processing take place with very little energy and the material also stores CO2. As a Swiss timber partner, Timbatec is committed to the use of this domestic raw material - also in public tenders.

    Since 1974 the wheel has been turning in the Schlossmühle Aarau. At that time it came to Aarau as a gift from the Bözen mill. But the wheel turned in no avail. The interior of the mill was empty and served as a storage room. Now the Schlossmühle is being extensively renovated. Timbatec calculated the statics of the many wooden components.

    The parliament took a firm vote in favor of the implementation of the Paris Climate Convention. The construction industry is now under obligation and must significantly reduce its CO2 emissions. This is only possible by dispensing with steel, reinforced concrete and brick in building construction. The know-how and raw materials for the adjustments are available.
