Wood is a renewable material that removes carbon dioxide from our air and enhances a building’s visual beauty. It is a natural choice for architects and developers who want to advance sustainable design in our built environment.
Innovative wood building materials like cross-laminated timber are bringing strong and stable alternatives to traditional materials like concrete and steel. This new material will allow developers to build with greater environmental and aesthetic value while reducing the cost of construction through custom-engineered panels.
At a time when sawmills are struggling to stay open and rural communities are fighting historic levels of poverty, wood innovation offers “win-win” opportunities to join the sustainable use of forest resources with low-carbon, green building objectives.
