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.

Wood replaced CO₂-intensive materials

Wooden houses are not only tremendous shifted from the forest carbon storage . They also contribute to less CO₂ produced elsewhere. Wood replaces conventional building materials such as brick or concrete, whose manufacture is CO₂-intensive, and avoids the resulting emissions.

Wooden building is construction for climate protection - LCA

From lifecycle analysis, the greenhouse gas emissions of a building from construction through maintenance look up to decommissioning and disposal, taking into account substitution effects, shows that per kilogram wood 1.76 kg CO₂ can be saved. Not included is the new growth potential of wood.During the lifetime of the building consumed in the building lot of wood growing in the forest again, relieving the atmosphere parallel again of CO₂.
