We focus on export for the European market but we also build houses in Moldova. Currently we are exploring our opportunities on markets which are not accessible by road but by shipping, like the United States of America and the Middle East
Depending on location and the availability of the assembly team we can send up to 4 people to assist you in the assembly of your house. Please keep in mind that this team only assists in assembly and will not build the foundation or finish the building from the inside.
Before we can make a price we need to have an overview of your preferences. This information will be gathered through the Client Questionnaire which will be sent to you if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. At the same time you can send us your drawings which will be analysed. After we have received both the drawings and the filled in Client Questionnaire we will send you a first tentative price offer.
All materials that are sensitive to rodents and insects are fully enclosed by the other construction materials we use. With normal maintenance it is not possible for them to reach the insulation material or wood at the core of the frame.
EPS or Expanded PolyStyrene is a sustainable material. It requires little energy to make and is 100% recyclable. There are no poisonous gasses present in EPS since the styrene droplets only have air inside of them. Most buildings in Europe have EPS insulation, especially in the ground floors.

Because we glue our panels together under a vacuum the panels are very strong. The glue, together with the wooden frame and EPS insulation react as a mechanically whole panel, making it flexible enough not to break during earthquakes. All panels are secured both with metal anchors and strong screws.
Since Uniqa uses a Dutch patented technology it complies with the Dutch construction code. Our standard panels comply with the required fire safety for free standing residential homes as stated in “Bouwbesluit 2012”, the most recent Dutch construction code. For apartment and office buildings, or at your request, we can add a firesafe material called Fermacell which is made in Germany. This material has a firesafety rating of A2, the second best available on the market. The added value of using Fermacell is a better sound insulation and easy finishing surface.

Since Uniqa uses a Dutch patented technology it complies with the Dutch construction code. Our standard panels comply with the required insulation values as stated in “Bouwbesluit 2012”, the most recent Dutch construction code. At your request we can increase the insulation value, in some cases quite easily. Our panels can also be made with very high insulation values as required by the Passive House construction methodology.

If you are interested in building your house with us feel free to contact us directly through email@example.com. If you already have a design ready you can send it directly as well. Please bear in mind that the drawings need to have all dimensions shown.
At first we will ask you a few questions through our Client Questionnaire, to fully understand the preferences you have for your project. After you have sent this information we will send you a tentative price offer. At your approval of the tentative price offer we can analyse your design and requirements in greater detail and send you a final price offer. At any stage during this process you are more than welcome to come visit us at our factory, to gain a better understand of what we make and how we work.
With proper maintenance the house will stand for as long as you want it to! The suppliers of our finishing materials and windows will have a shorter guarantee period which will be provided to you when you select that material for your house. We can give a guarantee for 10 years. For the first 5 years we give a 100% guarantee on avoidable damages during production and assembly on our products. After this the percentage of guarantee decreases with 20% every year.
