The traditional Zimmermeister master builder culture, going back all the way to the Middle Ages, is still alive and well in Germany. Zimmermeister is a respected profession, and to become one, you must pass a demanding exam preceded by years of studies and practical practice at construction sites. Teachings are passed from foremen to journeymen.
For Zimmermeisters, honour is everything; the purpose of construction is to implement a sound and sustainable building without compromises. Polar Life Haus entrepreneurs have spent long periods in Germany learning about local construction. The time spent in Germany has provided a vision of better construction and housing without compromising on design and quality but still respecting tradition and nature.
