Building with wood
Wood is historically our most important construction material by far. It retained its importance throughout the 20th century, but its use has been confined to smaller buildings, due to building regulations and strong advances by alternative construction materials. Now, as we strive to create a society that is sustainable in the long term, demand for wood-based products is picking up once again in all construction projects. This eco-awareness is reflected in an architectural renaissance for all types of buildings, public and private, both inside and out.
Wood is a natural, sustainable and recyclable material with a wide range of applications.
As well as building in wood, the material has long held a natural place in our homes and gardens, in the form of flooring, mouldings, cladding, decking, fencing and so on.
Wood stands out from all the other construction materials.
It is renewable, and organic, eco-friendly and climate-smart. There are many good reasons to choose wood.
