Help HEAL Fix the Building Industry with Stora Enso

Stora Enso is looking for solutions to benefit HEAL. HEAL is an initiative for the building industry – their toolkit is a collection of solutions to fix the critical pain points of the different fields across the value chain, benefit several stakeholders and complement one another. Is your solution what the building industry needs?

Welcome to HEAL! Stora Enso and Trä Group have created this initiative to change the way buildings are designed, built, and maintained. The end goal: to provide healthy, affordable and sustainable living for all.

We like to think of the future of HEAL as the App Store for the building industry. With your solution there, it will be seen by dozens of clients with construction tasks at hand, and they will be able to choose from the ready toolkit of tech and services the elements they need to deliver the best possible outcome of their projects. 

The Building Value Chain – What Connects Everything is Living

HEAL spans the entire building value chain, beginning from sustainable material sourcing, all the way to property management and recycling of said materials. HEAL’s philosophy is that in order to get the best out of a building’s lifecycle, planning needs to take into account all stages with the greatest care. See the diagram below for the key identified areas.

The toolkit being built is as such a unique selection of tech and services geared for creating value for homes. Participating companies have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join this select crowd of innovators, benefit from decades of industry experience along with being exposed to the newest inventions, and develop their solution with established Stora Enso clients. We are talking of a large crowd, all of who would be notified with priority about new developments and projects.

Of course, we do not expect you to have a full-stack solution for encompassing the decades-long lifetime of entire city districts in your back pocket. Focus on key areas is exactly what we need to maximize the value for people living and working in the buildings we create. We want your solutions focusing on the details of the value chain: your intimate expertise in a specific link is the solution that will propel us all forward.
