WOOD MEETS CODE
Advanced technology and modern building codes are expanding the opportunities for wood in construction.
WOOD COSTS LESS

Wood products offer advantages in terms of material, construction and environmental costs.

WOOD IS RENEWABLE

Wood is a renewable and responsible choice that helps reduce our environmental footprint.

 

 

 

High-tech material with eco bonus

Wooden buildings have smaller by more than half CO₂ footprint compared to buildings from conventional, non-renewable materials. And although factors such as substitution effects and recruitment opportunities are not even considered. Wood is a resilient but also extremely sustainable building material, but weighs only a quarter of the weight of concrete.

Wood in Abundance

We have wood in abundance and because constantly more wood grows than is harvested, it stays that way. Less than one third of the annual growth would be enough to build all the buildings a year in North America in wood. Building with wood has not only an amazing CO₂ footprint, but also scores otherwise full length.
