The various prefabricated house tests regularly prove that HUF HAUS produces excellent products. Whether in terms of energy efficiency, sustainability and design or when it comes to social commitment. The recognition of experts in top-class juries is always motivation and incentive for the entire HUF HAUS team.
As the market leader for modern timber frame houses made of wood and glass, the family-owned company has proven its expertise in house construction for many years.
The various awards, certificates and trophies prove this on this page.
In total, over 150 house designs were submitted, which were viewed and evaluated by an expert jury. In the end 49 homes in 7 categories were nominated. About 210,000 votes of readers and users decided on the gold and silver award.
HUF HAUS won the award in the forward-looking Smart Home category with its innovative concept house "Ausblick".
Customers Choice Award
The HUF Show House Mannheim was extremely popular with readers and came second in the readers' house selection for the "Großer Deutscher Fertighauspreis 2018" (Great German Prefabricated House Award 2018). The show house has an elegant and functional design language reminiscent of classic modernist models. The high proportion of glazing provides modern openness and a generous feeling of space.
Family Home House of the year
The show house Ausblick is chosen as the FamilyHome of the Year 2018 in the category "Smart House" and receives the highest award in GOLD. The house is the first of its kind not to be controlled by a classic smarthome system, but to think along with its owner. The artificial intelligence (AI) learns through the behaviour of the occupants, adapts and reacts directly to natural language.
Smart design award
The HUF Show house in Mannheim also convinced the jury of the "Großer Deutscher Fertighauspreis 2018" in the area of Smart Design. The KNX system is a good basis with sensible expansion options for the user. The company continues to combine many KNX-compatible products from different manufacturers.

The three-level quality system in prefabricated house construction
The seal approval of the Quality Association of German Prefabricated Housing (QDF) is the most comprehensive quality mark in German prefabricated housing construction. The test criteria are based on clearly defined technical standards and requirements for energy efficiency, environmental protection and contractual principles, which in total go far beyond the legal requirements. Our membership of the BDF (Bundesverband Deutscher Fertigbau e.V. - Federal Association of German Prefabricated Housing) obliges us to comply with the criteria and quality standards. Regular checks ensure this.
The RAL quality mark for timber house construction means that the production and assembly of the house manufacturer are regularly monitored. These quality criteria are of a technical nature and constantly increase the quality of the individual prefabricated house elements.
The Ü-lable provides information that a building product fulfils the legal minimum requirements and that legal conditions are observed.
HUF HAUS's extensive experience thus guarantees a durable, perfectly executed timber-frame construction, and the pronounced spirit of innovation guarantees constant progress.
