Kautokeino Home Care – the Best Energy Efficient Prefab Public Building

The Estonian Wooden House Association (http://www.puitmajaliit.ee) awarded to Qhaus a prize for Kautokeino Home Care Centre as “the best Energy efficient prefabricated public building“.
The prize was awarded in the frame of the annual contest “Prefab House of the Year” organized by the Association.
Out of the over 20 contestant involved, Kautokeino Project was selected as an example of great achievement of the prefab industry.

One thing is to produce standard house kits in a flat-pack form, other thing it to adapt the same technology to produce buildings with over 50 cm thick walls… especially when those walls are curved!

We are proud of the work done by our Engineers and Workers and we are very grateful to all those that contributed to this success, among which our Client “Peyma Enterprenor AS” and Kebony®.

Production of the building in Q-haus factory took approximately 4 weeks.

The building was shipped to the construction site in Kautokeino using 22 trucks in the period between November 2014 and January 2015.

The roof, including the round part, was built partly in element construction and partly with roof trusses. The roof trusses were produced in Q-haus factory in parallel to element production for a total of 170 pieces up to 13m long.

As Prefab Element House producer, Q-haus reached new heights with the successful delivery of this building.
