MEDITE® TRICOYA® EXTREME for the House of Heroes

MEDITE® TRICOYA® EXTREME for the House of Heroes

A hospital facility in Norrland, Sweden has been renovated extensively with wood-based products including MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME (MTX) panels.

The facility is a sanctuary that functions as a temporary home for families with young children suffering from long-term illness.

Designed by White Arkitekter, Hjältarnas Hus (House of Heroes) features MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME (MTX) panels along the outer walls, while the roof is structured from glue-laminated wood (‘glulam’), overlaid with white metal sheets.

MTX was specifically chosen due to its “outstanding qualities,” including being the only wood composite panel guaranteed to last 50 years in an external environment. Equally importantly, it is manufactured using no added formaldehyde; extremely important when considering its purpose as a recovery centre.

As MTX is fully FSC certified, it was a natural choice for a building designed to meet the highest environmental standards.

Generally, in using mainly timber for this build, Hjältarnas Hus and the Sweden Västerbotten Healthcare Council, who collaborated on the project, have eliminated approximately one tonne of carbon dioxide per one cubic metre of solid material, from being released into the atmosphere, compared to using materials such as concrete or brick.
