The 'Kerto® LVL residential buildings’ in Turku – constructed fast from wooden elements
’The Kerto LVL buildings’ – the Linnanfältti residential area of wooden three- and four-storey apartment buildings, were constructed fast in Turku. The wooden residential buildings were built using elements based on Metsä Wood’s Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) products, enabling fast, light and green construction.
City of Turku has enabled construction actors to experiment wood construction and build an urban area. The goal was to give new life to an old industrial milieu with different kinds of housing opportunities and services. The old wooden houses are now next to four more recent wooden residential buildings with 128 cozy homes.
