PENNY Market Skuteč

The first all-wood-construction in the Czech Republic is a pioneering building that sets a new standard in sustainable construction. Built using state-of-the-art technologies, this building boasts a significantly lower carbon footprint compared to traditional constructions. The structure is built using cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, which are renowned for their strength, durability, and eco-friendliness. This building serves as a food discounter and provides shoppers with a modern and environmentally conscious shopping experience. The use of wood in construction not only reduces carbon emissions but also contributes to the growth of sustainable forestry practices. This building is a symbol of the Czech Republic’s commitment to sustainability and the future of environmentally conscious construction. It is also currently the biggest allwood-building in the Czech Republic.
