Holzbau Carpentry Hess CC, which was established in 2007, is a Windhoek-based Carpentry and Construction Company in Namibia that specialises in precise and accurate timber roof construction, staircases and free-forms, as well as sturdy workmanship.
The Carpentry, which specialises in Glulam-manufacture (GL24h), as per European standards, offers custom-made design solutions for both residential and commercial developments. Glulam beams can be manufactured to maximum dimensions of 28 metres in length, 2.40 metres in height and 0.48 metres in thickness, as well as curved around all three axes with a minimum radius of 2 metres. Glulam can be used in almost every kind of construction for roofs, door and window beams, columns, and rafters.
As raw material is utilised to its maximum potential with minimal off-cuts, vast potential for structural design is made possible.
The Company’s timber construction offers a competitive alternative to steel construction with its use of specialised Computer Numerical Control (CNC) cutting machinery, as it enables the time spent on each project to be swifter and, thus, more cost effective; and it enhances the visual artistry of the finished product.
Holzbau Carpentry Hess CC designs and constructs for building projects of all scopes, sizes and budgets. The Company’s carpentry and construction capabilities provide its clients with practical, beautiful interiors and exteriors for inspired working and living spaces.
Although we are based and work predominantly in Namibia, we also implement projects across borders throughout the SADC region.
Roof Construction: Our Glulam exposed beams are captivating to the eye, and they enhance the aesthetic appeal of all roof structures that we manufacture. The Glulam timber and synthetic adhesives used are exceptionally resistant to the chemical attack of most acids, rust and various corrosive agents. The environmentally friendly and renowned insulation properties of Glulam timber eliminate the risks of the frames that are exposed to the external elements as well as the internal structures from the effects of hot and cold temperature fluctuations.
Staircases: Staircases are important structures in a home because, most often, they mark the transition from public to private spaces. It is entirely fitting, therefore, that they receive the same degree of attention to design and construction which characterises the rest of the interior. Our international expertise in workmanship offers home-owners and work-spaces a choice from a huge variety of designs and sizes for these essential structures.
Free-Forms: Twisted, curved or formed? Holzbau Carpentry Hess CC will introduce you to the endless possibilities of free-form Glulam structures. As none of the free-forms created are equal, we therefore produce a custom-made three-dimensional Glulam timber form in such a way that the wood fibres exactly follow the structure’s geometrical shape. Free-forms offer specific advantages: they are cost-effective solutions because as the wood fibres are not cut, there is minimal timber waste; and they are extremely appealing in appearance as very few cut- and glue-joints are visible.
