Treet or "The Tree" in Norwegian proves that sustainable solutions for buildings in an urban context can indeed be achieved by working across different sectors to create a cost-efficient, modular high-rise building using a prefabrication process. Finding inspiration in the long history of wood construction in Norway and, in particular timber bridge building, the decision to build a tall wood high-rise in Bergen was definitely appropriate. Along the way, Treet has also set a new record for being one of the tallest timber buildings to date.

  New buildings, as well as the renovated building stock, should aim not just for good energy performance but also for good quality of the works, as this is a prerequisite for high building energy performance. Various experiences show that there are cases where the quality of the works is a (major) issue of concern. This QUALICHeCK source book aims to provide guidelines and suggestions for better enforcement of quality of the works.
