Planning for the long term –

A systematic approach is the way to achieve faster, easier and more efficient results. So why shouldn’t the same principle apply to the design, production and assembly of a building?

Cree has integrated a range of flexible, mutually supportive technologies into its innovative building system: The LifeCycle Tower reflects our concept of customised industrialisation. The separate components in the Cree building system (structural parts, service appliances and interior fit-out) can be prefabricated as standard products and used as modules.

However, this does not mean we have abandoned the idea of customised design features. Our buildings still provide a great deal of flexibility when it comes to interior layouts, optional add-ons included in the package, and choice of facade designs – going far beyond the normal concept of “standardisation”.

Wood is the most natural material imaginable as the basis for such a system. This applies particularly to taller buildings, as wood has outstanding structural properties, is extremely resilient, has high life expectancy and ensures minimum resource and energy consumption. Apart from that, wood can be harvested and processed almost anywhere.

A special kind of standardisation

CO2 store

Easy alteration means the incorporated materials are seen as a quantifiable store of value over many decades.

Timber hybrid building system

For multi-storey buildings with up to 30 storeys and 100 m high with minimised use of resources and energy over the whole lifecycle.

Flexibility

With no loadbearing partition walls, the system is very flexible and allows individualised floor layouts.

Modular

The individual system components, such as the core, ceiling and protective facade, are industrially prefabricated and can be incorporated as modules.
