Lunawood Cladding

Lunawood is an unrivaled material for facades thanks to its dimensional stability, weather resistance, durability and beautiful appearance - all achieved without chemicals naturally through thermal modification. Lunawood Thermowood does not require surface coatings even in the most challenging climate conditions which makes it a truly sustainable choice throughout its life cycle.  This allows your project to have that naturally grayed exterior cladding, if desired.  The raw material for our products comes from a renewable and certified Scandinavian forest.

Campus Roskilde

With the new Campus Roskilde, University College Sealand consolidates its professional bachelor’s programmes covering social education and social work, health and teaching. The new campus will facilitate dialogue and random meetings and provide the students with a feeling of being part of a manifold university environment beating with one pulse.
