PEFC Certified Building Project to be Constructed of Stora Enso's CLT Elements

24 March 2016

The journey of wood from forest to building includes many stages, all of which should be traceable in a responsible construction project. PEFC certification provides verified assur-ance on the legal origin of the wood and its chain of custody from sustainably managed for-est to product.


The PEFC certified building project in Seinäjoki Housing Fair is constructed from Stora Enso's CLT modules. The modules are prefabricated in Hartola mill, and ready for an as-sembly in the construction site. The prefabricated elements include windows, doors and kitchen units. The erection of the building at the site is both rapid and safe. The main materi-al for the elements is PEFC certified solid wood CLT (cross-laminated timber).


Stora Enso's premise in CLT pro-duction is responsibly sourced re-newable wood. "Population growth and urbanization as well as raising awareness on environmental and climate issues increase the urge for sustainable and climate friendly wood-based construction", says Petri Perttula, Head of Building Solutions at Stora Enso.


PEFC project certification is based on Chain of Custody practices. When independent third party cerification gives assurance that the project adheres to PEFC requirements, a building is issued a PEFC certificate.


Apartment building Mäihä is built in Seinäjoki in the area of Pruukinranta. Seinäjoki Housing Fair will take place on 8.7.–7.8.2016.


Studio apartments are delivered to the site in one piece. Two and three room apartments are assembled from mul-tiple elements.
