Accelerators of circular construction

A Tala building is

Tala Duurzaam

1. Sustainable

Sustainability consists of energy usage and circularity. Circularity at Tala means that the structure is a long-term carbon storage. This helps the fight against global warming.  
We work with renewable and reusable materials. Buildings are almost energy neutral (BENG norm in The Netherlands) and there are options to go beyond that.

Tala Betaalbaar

2. Affordable

Tala develops innovative solutions focused on prefabrication and standardization. This keeps our cost base low. We believe that sustainable housing should be in reach for everyone.

Tala Comfortabel

3. Comfortable

You will feel safe and at ease in a Tala building. You are protected against the elements, the interior climate is comfortable, the design is sleek and the building meets your needs. You won’t want to go back!

The Tala method

Material usage

Tala uses CLT as the basis for the construction. This is a modern form of one of the oldest and most proven construction materials in the world: wood. Wood is fully renewable and Tala plants twee trees back for every tree it uses. A Tala structure already consists of over 75% renewable materials. We are striving to get this to 100%.

Tala guarantees

Tala Brandveiligheid

Fire safety

Fire safety

CLT burns slow and predictable. A layer of char is created while burning, functioning as a natural insulator slowing the process. The building’s integrity is upheld for a long time. Naturally all Tala structures adhere to the rules and regulations of your country.
Tala CO2 opslag

Carbon storage

Carbon storage

The construction of a conventional building exhausts dozens of tons of CO2. Production of concrete, cement and steel are very polluting. A wooden building on the other hand, stores dozens of tons sustainably. Your wooden construction helps slowing global warming.
Tala Gezond binnenklimaat

Healthy interior climate

Healthy interior climate

By creating buildings that breathe, a natural moisture balance emerges. This makes the building very robust against problems with moisture. Besides, inhabitants are healthier because chances of mold formation are close to nil.
Tala Circulair materiaalgebruik

Circular materials

Circular materials

A Tala buidling already consists of over 75% of bio-based and circular materials. Wood, but also bamboo and hemp. Our goal is to continuously increase this share.
Tala Goede akoestiek

Great acoustics

Great acoustics

CLT absorbs aerial sounds better than traditional materials. Rooms will not sound hollow. Sounds from direct contact, such as walking on a floor, is a point of special attention for CLT. Tala has innovative solutions that guarantee no noise comes through from your neighbours or overexcited kids.
Tala Snelle bouwtijd

Speedy construction

Speedy construction

At the construction site a building can be finalized in days or a few weeks. This is a significant improvement of the current way of working. Disturbance is kept to a minimum. Nice for your future neighbors!
Tala Mooie looks

Looking good

Looking good

CLT can (partly) be kept in sight, which gives a modern and natural feel to every interior. On the exterior there are no limitations to what can be done. We will make sure the building fits neatly into the environment.
Tala Veilige bouwplaats

Safe construction

Safe construction

The construction industry is still very prone to accidents. In our own location we can always work safely. At the construction site we are fast and need less movements, thereby reducing risks.
Tala afval

Less waste

Less waste

By prefabrication at our own facility there is less damage from bad weather and from mistakes. This can save up to 15% of materials.

Our Team

Tala, Take A Look Around. What do you see? We see an environment that’s under huge pressure. We see a construction industry that is responsible for 40% of global carbon emissions. This needs to change and with that conviction we started Tala.

It’s our mission to make a measurable contribution in making the Dutch new-build industry more sustainable. The world we imagine consists of buildings that are comfortable, affordable and fully sustainable.
