Our values

Bauwerk Quality

Bauwerk quality stands for the highest standards and is based on the four pillars of Development, Production, Services and Installation. Using this system, we guarantee top quality at every stage of the production process – and far beyond.

People and technology

In our production, we guarantee Bauwerk quality by combining expertise with the latest technology. Even state-of-the art production facilities cannot replace the hands-on and visual inspections by experienced staff.

Inspiration and advice

An important element of the Bauwerk quality is the individual advice provided by our parquet and interior design specialists. At Bauwerk Worlds of Parquet in Switzerland, Austria and Germany, customers have the opportunity to experience and get inspired by every aspect of parquet.

Selected installers

Best quality is only achieved when high quality parquet is installed professionally. That is why Bauwerk works with selected installers and also offers these partners professional education and training at the Bauwerk Parkett Academy (BPA) in St. Margrethen.

Innovation as a claim

For us quality also means continuous improvement. As early as the beginning of the 1950s, the company began to conduct research on wood technology. We are still developing products with the same pioneering spirit today, such as the Vintage Edition (2012), Silverline Edition (2012), Master Edition (2013), Formpark (2014), Silente Technology (2014), B-Protect® (2015) and much more.

Swiss Tradition

Switzerland is full of wonderful customs, colourful ways of life and rich in traditions. By combining these roots with Swiss quality awareness and new ideas, we create an inspiring variety of parquet for people who enjoy designing their living space.

Ernst Göhner

Ernst Göhner laid the foundation for the Bauwerk Parkett AG of today and in 1936 developed the process for manufacturing wooden bodyworks for cars. The first mosaic parquet was developed in the same year.

Parquet from St. Margrethen

Bauwerk continues to manufacture parquet at its site in St. Margrethen. Our staff, for example, Josef Mennel who works in the finishing process (image), are engaged in ensuring the quality of our products with great passion and precision. What unites us all is our fascination for wood as a material and its naturalness.

Swiss precision

We manufacture parquet of a unique quality through absolute precision and constant attention to detail. This quality is the basis for a quick and precise installation and a parquet experience that wows.

Healthy Living

With the predicate of «Healthy Living», Bauwerk makes an important contribution to a better quality of life. Because the deliberate decision of only using materials that promote healthy living contributes significantly to one's personal well-being indoors

Healthy living guaranteed

With its Sentinel-Haus certification and its distinction of Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold and Bronze, Bauwerk offers a unique guarantee:
Building owners and their families have the assurance that no harmful volatile organic compounds have been unknowingly incorporated or concealed in the entire Bauwerk range. This means that no noxious substances will be discharged into the ambient air – for a pleasant, healthy living environment even according to MINERGIE–ECO® standards.

Why is this important?

We spend 80 to 90 percent of our life closed indoors and we breath in ten to twenty cubic metres of air there. The building envelopes used toady are practically airtight making perfect sense when it comes to energy-saving issues. However, the exchange of air within the building is so minimized that pollutants from the most varied of sources can accumulate in a room. The first prerequisite for healthier rooms is therefore certified building components. Bauwerk already started consistently testing and reviewing its products together with the Sentinel Haus Institut back in 2010.

Is parquet itself actually healthy?

No, although wood is a natural, renewable resource, when parquet is produced, other substances such as adhesives, lacquers and oils are also used. That is why the materials from Bauwerk are regularly tested and reviewed with independent institutes from different countries. Because only this way can we guarantee that Bauwerk parquet does not contain any worrying substances.

Innovative noise reduction

Our hearing perceives intrusive sounds or quickly changing sounds as noise. By bonding the parquet, the sound made by walking can be significantly reduced. With Silente technology, Bauwerk has developed an innovative system solution that reduces ambient and impact sound even more, which is a really big issue for renovations.

Invisible, but measurable

A high standard of health indoors does not happen by accident, it can be technically planned and it is measurable. In addition to the pollutant-free ambient air and the pleasant acoustics, parquet flooring impresses with its other strengths. Parquet floors do not build up static, they feel warm on cold feet and still remain pleasantly cool on hot summer days.
