Life Cycle Assessment – Cost Balance

The use of (locally available) natural materials as a raw material is particularly suitable for ecological reasons. At the same time, this type of resource-conscious and environmentally-conscious building not only minimizes the “ecological footprint”, but also makes the construction of a building much cheaper than building without the use of renewable raw materials.

The procurement of materials depends on the resources of the region. This is because the multi-layer screwed wooden shed enables the wall to be loaded with different heavy and light materials so that the design and construction of the wall elements can easily adapt to the respective climate. Insulation and storage layers are to be installed variably depending on local requirements.

In the production of a wall element, waste and waste are hardly produced.

The favorable energy balance is mainly fed by:

  • material procurement and transport from the regional environment,
  • processing of the materials in the regional environment,
  • drying the woods,
  • electrical energy by using simple machines for sawing, screwing, lifting, etc.

The HarKun wall elements can also be produced in industrial production and delivered as prefabricated parts to the construction site in a time-saving and cost-effective way – as in traditional wooden frame construction.
