Market

Hospitality in tourism, agriculture, construction and events.
The primary focus is on out city b2b tourism market - glamping, camping, out city hotels, etc.
European market volume is 300 000 000 EUR
Accommodations want to increase their capacity as simple as possible.
Strong trend to innovation detected in camping industry.
Our first customer is a Hungarian hotel owner.
Speed mounting is also important in Event management.
Our target is 1% of that market volume in three years.

Problem or Opportunity

The European prefab house market is growing 7-9% every year since 2012.
The reasons for this are
demand for smarter and cheaper building processes
shortage of qualified labor
reliability for time and money estimates
More than that there are popping up several projects in this area:
Last year Amazon invested 6.7 million dollars in Plant Prefab.
This year Node housing startup was presented at Y Combinator Demo Day.

These are the signals for the total escalation of the prefabrication trend in construction.

Genuine idea of prefabrication was to simplify mounting and dismantling. But something went wrong and now you need a crane, several people, certified electrician and quality control officer at the installation sites. And after all these activities your wall prints might not match!
These technologies are getting too old.

Solution (product or service)

Using modern technology, we made tiny housing simple again. Brette Haus uses Cross-Laminated Timber, which makes self-supporting elements and allows them to fold in and out.
Thus, all our houses

Foldable and could be installed in three hours
Up to 100 sq.m of ready to use houses could be delivered by one truck and it meets the road regulations;
All sanitary and electrical engineering are already prefabricated. You can move in immediately
Being non-capital, it could be installed on any leveled ground
The container-liked size makes it easy and safe to store and deliver at any time
Natural ventilation process takes place in our houses because we use only solid wood.
