Cree is a pioneer in prefabricated timber and timber-hybrid system construction. The company develops an international network of people and projects related to timber-based system construction. Cree is owner of specific technical and operational know-how, patents and utility models concerning the systemized, semi-industrial fabrication of high-rise and large-scale timber and timber-hybrid buildings for the purpose of multiple and variable use.
Cree has developed a set of principles for the erection of prefabricated timber and timber-hybrid buildings by using the Proprietary Concept under the name “CREE” and certain other Marks, which provides competitive and economic advantages.
The challenges for the global construction industry are enormous. More than 50% of the world’s population today lives in cities with more than 1 million inhabitants - and the trend is increasing. 40% of today's energy and resource consumption, as well as 40% of all CO2 emission and waste production, are accounted by the global construction business.
In the past, urban architecture has been based predominantly on conventionally produced prototypes with long, complex and resource-intensive construction processes. The proposed system is a multi-story, timber based, sustainable building approach that had been developed in Europe from 2008 on, to reverse these trends.
The goal of the project was to develop a flexible, high performance, prefabricated construction system as a new product, which meets all technical and economical requirements of modern real estate markets. The Cree system is based predominantly on a renewable resource – wood, with additional emphasis placed on resource and energy efficiency.
The Cree system is meant to demonstrate to the building industry that there are new timber technologies and serial processes where a modern system approach to construction can be applied. The aim is not only to improve the performance of buildings but also develop a process to guarantee success, resulting in increased productivity, cost certainty, and a high quality building.
