Properties currently represent 40 per cent of the total energy consumption in Sweden. Friendly Building is investing in modern and green modular houses. These “passive” houses are well-insulated and have minimal heat leakage. Built-in technology uses the energy generated indoors, which together with solar panels makes for a zero-energy house that produces as much energy as it uses.
Volume elements made of steel and concrete are built on site according to detailed blueprints in a permanent factory, which keeps costs down. The framework is made from recycled steel with floor structures of steel and wood. Friendly Building was founded 2012 by Ingrid Westman.
