Build-in-Wood is an EU funded project improving the sustainability of European construction. It strives to make wood a natural choice for the construction of multi-storey buildings. We have recently joined the project consortium.
The ambition of the Build-in-Wood project is to make optimised and cost effective wood construction methods common practice in the European construction sector. The project will address this challenge through innovative development of materials and components as well as structural systems and façade elements for multi-storey wood buildings fit for both new construction and retrofitting.
The project consortium includes over twenty key European and international players from the entire building industry value chain. "For Stora Enso, joining the consortium benefits our brand, potentially generates new leads, and we can also ensure the alignment to our own product portfolio," says Johanna Kairi, Business Development Manager in Wood Products.
"There are so-called early adopter cities that closely collaborate with the consortium to intensify the use of wood both in urban core and the surrounding municipalities. They have defined their challenges when it comes to building in wood, and the project will support to overcome them," Johanna continues.
The early adopter cities include Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Innsbruck in Austria, and Trondheim in Norway, among others.
Based on EU funding, the project started in 2019 and it will close in the autumn of 2023. The project is coordinated by the Danish Technological Institute.
