A new challenge – design and manufacturing of 8-9 floor wood frame buildings

Astel Modular, in collaboration with residential buildings developer Norrterna, has taken on the challenge to design and manufacture wooden buildings that are 8-9 floor high for the new apartment building projects in Karlskrona. Although the wooden construction technologies are evolving rapidly, it is uncommon to see wooden buildings over 5 storeys high.

In 2015, eight apartments in Enånger were destroyed by a fire. It was uncertain for a long time whether the municipally-owned housing company Hudiksvallsbostäder would build new apartments – it seemed to be too expensive from the start, but now construction is underway. At the same time, the housing company is currently constructing 66 apartments outside the city center.

The rooms of the “Welcome-Center” in Kieli Road (German: Kieler Straße) are surrounded by a colonnade. The three residential buildings can house the total of 150 refugees.

The rooms in the two-storey residential buildings of the “Welcome-Centre” opposite the fire house in Kiel Road look practical and modest: three beds and six cabinet modules resembling deposit lockers – this is what a typical room for three looks like.
