Company "Skonto Prefab" built a church parish house in Norway from design all the way to its assembly. The project is made of CLT wood panels, which were produced in Latvian city of Jelgava. The project had a particularly complex design, with each room having a different slope, an irregular shape and an unusual construction.
In order to implement the project, "Skonto Prefab" delivered eight trucks with 251 elements, making a total of 2,185 square meters of CLT wood panels. Despite the harsh weather conditions, the project was completed sooner than scheduled.
This project serves as an evidence that CLT buildings are suitable not only for standard projects, but also for large and complex structures.
