TRIQBRIQ for healthy living

The solid wood construction system TRIQBRIQ enables construction without the use of artificial fasteners by using inexpensive weak and damaged wood in standardized modules (wooden blocks). TRIQBRIQ can significantly and positively improve the sustainability standard in shell construction, especially in the area of CO2 binding, energy saving, recycling, and indoor climate. Simple and quick planning such as assembly – with little need for skilled workers – makes it possible to achieve the climate targets in the construction sector.

  • 04
    100 % Reusable
In contrast to other solid wood modules, TRIQBRIQs are made from damaged wood - wood that is currently largely rotting in our forests. This means that TRIQBRIQ is not only particularly affordable but also binds CO2 that would be released during rotting. Additionally, TRIQBRIQs save energy due to regional wood, short transport routes, and environmentally friendly production. This results in a resource-efficient, 100 % natural building material with a low CO2 footprint throughout the entire product life cycle.
Building a shell with TRIQBRIQs is much cheaper than with concrete. Conventional building costs around EUR 900 - 1200 per square meter of living space. With TRIQBRIQs you reduce your costs to EUR 500 - 600 per square meter of living space. The assembly causes approx. 60 % of the construction costs. This is where the wooden block can score because it can be delivered to everyone as raw material and cost-effectively built on your own. With the optional personal contribution, you can achieve savings of at least 40 % in assembly alone.
A wooden block can be produced fully automatically in 15 seconds. A floor of 500 square meters made of TRIQBRIQs can be built in 2 days. In contrast, conventional shell construction with concrete would take around 10-20 days. Since there is hardly any need for skilled workers and no required drying times when building with TRIQBRIQ, waiting, planning and construction times are reduced to a minimum.
Building with TRIQBRIQ makes your house 100 % recyclable. The wooden blocks are simply connected with wooden dowels and thus don’t need artificial fasteners. In combination with a reusable steel foundation (screw pile foundation), the entire building can be recycled. This drastically reduces the amount of waste in construction and maximizes the added value of our natural resources.

FAQs

Frequently asked questions about TRIQBRIQ

TRIQBRIQs work like Lego bricks. The system has a standard size of 30 x 30 cm and varies in length between 30 cm, 60 cm, and 240 cm as required. The individual TRIQBRIQs are then stacked on top of one another and connected with wooden dowels. The principle is as simple as the construction. The individual TRIQBRIQs can be plugged onto one another as desired, and window and cable ducts can simply be cut out. The system is therefore extremely flexible and can be modified to your individual needs.

The wooden blocks stand on a screw pile foundation. The steel foundation does not require cement or concrete and is 100 % recyclable. The foundation can be installed regardless of the quality of the soil and is ideal for a fast implementation of your construction project because there are no drying times.

We use untreated softwood and hardwood for our TRIQBRIQs. What is special is that we can process small wood, storm wood, beetle wood, and heartwood for the wooden building blocks. To optimize the transport routes, we concentrate on the removal of damaged wood from regional forests. We receive municipal support, which means that we can minimize material and transport costs and thus offer you a particularly affordable and sustainable building material.

The Federal Forest Research Center (BFW) advises processing damaged wood in time and removing it from the forest to counteract a further increase in the number of bark beetles. With the use of TRIQBRIQs, you not only create an environmentally friendly home but also help the regional forests to survive.

Our forests have been suffering from drought and heatwaves for years. Pests such as the bark beetle can therefore easily multiply in already weakened trees and grow into a population that can be dangerous for the forest. However, forest damage is also caused by storms, fires as well as disease and fungal attack. In 2019, 32 million cubic meters of damaged wood were felled, almost three times as much as in the previous year.

Sustainability starts in the forest. Wood stores CO2 – in the forest as well as in the built-up state. When wood is felled and processed, the carbon bound in it remains in a depot for decades or even centuries.

For our TRIQBRIQs, we also use damaged wood, i.e., wood that is in the forest and cannot be used for the conventional construction industry. This intervenes in the carbon cycle and prevents the wood from rotting. If wood rots or decomposes, the stored carbon is released back into the atmosphere.

According to the Federal Association of German Prefabricated Buildings, enough wood for a prefabricated single-family house grows in Germany in just 23 seconds. Wood is therefore one of the few renewable raw materials that binds the climate-damaging carbon dioxide during its entire growth phase and thus has a very good carbon footprint.

We manufacture in Germany, Sweden and Austria. We rely on regional sourcing of softwood and hardwood to optimize transport routes and save CO2.

Our machines work on the basis of electricity. To provide environmentally friendly energy we have our own photovoltaic systems. Purchase and production are environmentally friendly, and gray energy is reduced to a minimum.

You don’t need a lot in order to work with TRIQBRIQs. The wooden blocks can be set up quickly and easily without having any special expertise. All you need is a single tool. There are no long drying times, nor are you tied to a certain time of year during installation.

If you do not want to build by yourself, we also offer fully automated, mechanical assembly using robots. The construction is cost-effective, CO2-neutral, and can be built regardless of location or region.

We offer an online planning tool for do-it-yourself customers that automatically calculates relevant data for statics, building physics, fire protection, and ways to minimize the costs. Our architects will also be happy to support you in planning and room design.

TRIQBRIQs are produced fully automatically and CO2 neutral. A TRIQBRIQ is fully loaded within 15 seconds. A floor of TRIQBRIQs with a size of 500 square meters is built in 2 days. In contrast, conventional shell construction with concrete would take around 10 – 20 days.

The shell construction with our wooden building blocks is not only much more ecological but also cheaper than conventional construction methods. When building with TRIQBRIQS, the costs are around EUR 500 – 600 per square meter of living space. With conventional construction, however, you have to reckon with around EUR 900 – 1200 per square meter.

You can also save at least 40 % of the assembly costs through the optional personal contribution. Assembly alone accounts for 60 % of the cost of a construction project.

The screw pile foundation is also cheaper than a conventional base plate. Here the price is EUR 100 – 250 per square meter, a conventional base plate costs EUR 200 – 400.

A solid wood house made of TRIQBRIQs has enormous advantages over conventional houses, such as those made of reinforced concrete:

+ Sustainable building with renewable resource wood
+ Healthy indoor climate thanks to breathable and natural materials
+ CO2 binding
+ 100 % recyclable: natural resource wood without artificial fasteners!
+ Reduction of gray energy (short transport routes due to regional sourcing, low-CO2 production)
+ Inexpensive shell construction with a high degree of sustainability
+ Fast construction times: No drying times, hardly any need for skilled workers, simple and fast assembly
+ DIY stacking principle: cost savings of at least 40 % through optional personal contribution
+ High flexibility, great scope for design
+ High solidity and intrinsic value
+ Optimal protection against cold, heat, noise, fire, and earthquakes
+ High storage capacity, lower heating costs

Climate protection is important to us, which is why we want to make a statement with our product and initiate a fundamental change in the construction industry.

In relation to its weight, wood carries 14 times as much as steel and is just as pressure-resistant as reinforced concrete. Due to the good static values, wooden houses are preferred in earthquake areas.

Wood is a versatile building material that can be used to build in any width or height. The HoHo in Vienna shows that you can even build skyscrapers out of wood. The wooden high-rise building has 24 floors and is 84 meters high.

Wooden houses have to meet fire protection requirements just like concrete houses. Studies and statistics show that an increased use of wood does not lead to an increased risk of fire. The risk of fire does not depend on the material of the house, but on the interior, the age and behavior of the residents, and the electrical installation.

Wood burns naturally, but it burns safely and predictably: approx. 0.6 – 0.8 mm per minute. A layer of charcoal forms on the surface of the wood, which protects the core. As a result, it remains stable for a long time. A static collapse, as can happen with reinforced concrete when the steel girders melt, is very unlikely with solid wood construction.

Sound insulation:
All construction methods are subject to the same sound insulation requirements. These requirements are regulated by DIN 4109. Sound insulation mainly consists of airborne sound and impact sound insulation. While airborne sound is caused by noises like cars, impact sound is triggered within the house.

The sound insulation requirements are achieved through the multilayer structure of the wooden walls. Natural building materials, which are open-pored or have a structure, reduce noise. Loose and heavy mass such as sand or rubber are used to create decoupling in the structure and thus sounds are absorbed. The individual units are separated from each other and are sound independent in themselves. Clay, wood, cork, fabrics, and plants also contribute to sound insulation.

Thermal insulation:
Wooden houses require less heating energy. Wood as a building material has very good self-regulating insulating properties without using a lot of space.

Wood ensures a better and pollution-free room climate. Many residents report that they feel more comfortable in a wooden house than in a stone or concrete house.

Studies have shown that living and working in an environment with a lot of wood has positive effects on health. Wood is self-regulating, so temperatures are pleasant even in summer.

Half-timbered houses consist of load-bearing wooden elements and are proof that, depending on the quality, a wooden house will last for many generations. The total useful life of wooden houses built from 1985 onwards is 80 years. The technical lifespan is well over 100 years. Thanks to the special drying process of our TRIQBRIQs, we also guarantee that your house will be free from mold for 50 years.

No, the wooden blocks do not have to be impregnated or post-treated on a regular basis.

No. TRIQBRIQs are technically dried in such a way that there is no longer a breeding ground for pests.

Building with TRIQBRIQ makes your house 100 % recyclable. The wooden blocks are connected with wooden dowels and thus manage completely without artificial fasteners. In combination with the reusable steel foundation, the entire building can be recycled. By building with TRIQBRIQ, you are helping to drastically reduce waste in the construction industry and take a major step towards achieving the climate targets.

In order to achieve the climate goals, we have to act quickly. We at TRIQBRIQ want to have a positive influence on the sustainability standard in the construction industry. With our holistic concept and our climate-neutral building material, we will change the construction industry.

TRIQBRIQs are produced in a CO2-neutral manner. We use regional damaged wood to save transport routes, costs, and CO2. Our forests have been affected by the consequences of climate change for years. The number of damaged wood increases every year. The heatwaves of recent years made it easier for bark beetles to spread. Most recently, 32 million cubic meters of damaged wood were felled. Almost six times as much as in 2017.

So, what does TRIQBRIQ contribute to climate protection?

Wood is the only renewable raw material that binds the climate-damaging carbon dioxide during its entire growth phase and thus has a very good carbon footprint. The carbon cycle of a forest begins with the growth phase of the trees. In the growth phase, the trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. If a tree rots, the carbon dioxide is released again.

We intervene in this cycle and remove wood before it rots. Thus, the carbon is stored in the wood. In addition, we don’t use any concrete and cement. Concrete and cement are often referred to as “climate killers”, since cement production produces around 2.8 billion tons of carbon dioxide every year. This corresponds to 8 % of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Yes, wooden constructions are proven to be beneficial to the health of allergy sufferers and asthmatics. Wood is open to diffusion, which means that it can absorb and release moisture. This regulates the humidity to 45 – 55 %, which has a calming effect on the respiratory tract.
