German wood building award ‘Deutscher Holzbaupreis’ for aktivhaus serie 700

Waldkirch, 06. June 2017 –   The Ganter Group is an associate of Aktivhaus GmbH, which builds key-turn-ready and sustainable houses in modular construction. The aktivhaus series 700 just won the most important award for construction with wood: The German ‘Holzbaupreis 2017’ in the category components/concept.
The German ‘Holzbaupreis‘ is given every other year since 2003 from Holzbau Deutschland and divers partners. The prize shows what is possible with wood as a construction material. Architects, structural framework planers, builders and companies of the wood branch can participate. The prize is said to be the most important award for buildings made from wood in Germany. It is given in three areas: New building, remodeling of existing buildings and components/concepts.
The jury praised the ‘distinguished concept, thoughtful and minimalistic design and the flexible use’ of the aktivhaus serie 700.
The award ceremony always takes place at the LIGNA, exhibition for forestry and timber industry in Hanover. The leading event for this industry took place from 22nd to 26th May.
Michael Ganter is happy: „the award is another confirmation for us, that the right decisions have been made with the Serie 700. At the same time it is a stimulus for us, to support the project aktivhaus further with our knowhow regarding high-quality and sustainable construction”
