Building like the forest – without waste and hazardous waste – and everything remains valuable.
When houses are produced according to our Holz100 standard, everything remains valuable. Everything! 100 percent! With Holz100, we at Thoma developed the first truly sustainable closed-loop concept for the construction industry.

We take you with us on our research journey 2022! As part of the European Interreg innovation funding, we are building the first Holz100 office tower for research purposes. After years of use, the tower will be dismantled back into its components to be used again to construct a new building, with new architecture.
