WoodBarn constructs a house within 12 hours
With material and applicational intelligence provided by FII, Woodbarn signs technical collaboration with Lameco LHT Oy (Finland) for speedier construction
WoodBarn India introduces these houses/cottages at the current India Wood exhibition being held at Bangalore International exhibition Centre at the Canadian Wood booth. The Tongue and Groove (T&G) style house was made with Spruce-pine-fir, a sustainably sourced Canadian wood species that is ideal for structural applications due to its strength and dimensional stability. More species of Canadian wood were used to embellish the interiors of the house. For example, Western hemlock an evolving preferred choice of furniture manufacturers in India due to its looks and workability was used for furniture. While the doors and door frames were made with Yellow cedar which is a high-quality substitute wood in lieu of UPVC windows that cancel out noise, dust and water.
Sanjay Sharma, chairman & MD, Wood Barn India Pvt Ltd., said “Our new agreement with Mr. Ismo Rautiainen’s Lameco LHT Oy helps us in expediting up the entire process from 36 hours earlier to 12 hours now. This will help us in further conserving potable water as well as provide more energy efficiency”.
Pranesh Chhibber, country director, FII India (Canadian Wood) said, “Canadian wood on its part is doing its bit in promoting building with wood through technical support and handholding in the T&G, WFC & Post & Beam method in addition to the hybrid method of building with wood and local stone/brick besides interior and exterior use of wood in more traditional applications such as panelling, cladding, furniture (indoor & outdoor), joinery - doors & windows and pergolas/gazebos etc.”
Ismo Rautiainen said, “Lameco LHT Oy has considerable experience in the line of manufacturing these Wooden houses and resorts. Our arrangement will be such that Lameco LHT Oy will provide technical know-how to WoodBarn India with technical know-how and advice for the purpose of improving or starting the factory and installing the plant and machineries for the manufacture of wooden structures.
These wooden structures are unique in themselves displayed a blend of modernity, absolute functionality and aesthetics, that are in tune with nature and in India are already being used by leading resorts like Tamara Coorg. Pancheri, ITC Dharamshala, Some of the club Mahendra Properties, Radisson Blu Dharamshala among others
