INDIVIDUALITY MADE TO MEASURE
Building a house is a project of a lifetime and should be tailored to your needs and wishes. We can build the house of your dreams, which is correctly situated into a space created following the most up-to-date criteria of energy-saving and built out of environmentally friendly materials.
At VEKOTERM inženiring d.o.o., we strive to be innovative and make advancements in the field of wooden construction. Environmental requirements guide us in using as many natural materials as possible. An example of good practice is the use of thermal insulation panels made from natural wooden fibres.
Constructing out of wood is economical, technologically tried and tested, controlled and an affordable solution. But most of all, a wooden building is dry, which makes for a comfortable and healthy living space as soon as it is built.
REASONS TO CHOOSE VEKOhiše HOUSES
Each house is unique and tailored to your needs and wishes. We can build the house of your dreams, which is correctly situated into a space created following the most up-to-date criteria of energy-saving and built out of environmentally friendly materials. VEKOhiše houses are low-energy houses. They only require a small amount of energy to heat up and cool down. The outer layer is covered in high-quality thermal insulation and the building has high-quality fixtures built in, which results in an energy efficiency building. Whilst providing a pleasant and healthy living space.
The advantage of wooden houses is the speedy construction. This is possible due to our thorough preparation and production of individual pieces in the factory. This ensures there are no unnecessary construction materials on the worksite.
They are exceptionally seismically resistant, which is due to their lightness. Wood withstands traction, compressive and bending forces very well, which is the opposite of concrete that can only withstand a high compressive force.
VEKOhiše houses provide a high level of fire safety. We realise that wood is a flammable material, however, in the cases of larger cross sections, a charred layer is created on the surface which works as a protective layer against fire.
We make houses out of environmentally-friendly and health-friendly materials. This consequently ensures a pleasant and healthy living space. Wood does not release any harmful radiation, while, together with plaster, regulating the air humidity in the room. Cement bonded panels have a high specific gravity, which provides excellent sound proofing, fire resistance and are not susceptible to moisture. A VEKOhiše house is a wood house that breathes, as wood is diffuse, which means it lets air through in both directions.
The walls are thinner than those in other construction, which increase living space by about ten per cent.
We also offer our own line of building fixtures and fittings (windows, doors, panoramic walls, front doors...) which ensures the complete execution of the building envelope.
WINDOW THERMODYNAMICSWINDOW THERMODYNAMICS To be able to choose the right windows, you must first be familiar with the basics of window thermodynamics. The calculation principle is prescribed by European norms. To properly understand this it is necessary to be familiar with the basic concepts and formulas.
Uf – heat transfer factor (W/m2K)
G – contribution of the sun
Uf – frame heat transfer factor
Ug – glass heat transfer factor
Uw – window heat transfer factor
Ψ – linear loss
Ψg – heat transfer through the edge of the glass
Ψfitting – heat transfer through the edge of the fitted window
A – area
Aw – area of the window (Aw=Ag + Af)
Ag – area of the glass
Af – area of the window frame
Ig – length of the edge of glass
