ADVANTAGES OF WOOD

PROPERTIES AND APPLICATIONS.

Wood is a renewable resource and has been used as a building material for thousands of years. The ability of trees and plants to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) and release oxygen with the help of sunlight is elementary for all life on earth. If native wood is used in construction, the transport distances and the energy required to provide and process it are low. If wood products are energetically recycled at the end of their service life, they can even provide more energy than was consumed in their manufacture. In the process, only as much CO2 is released as the tree absorbed, i.e. bound, during its growth. It is a warm building material that does not draw heat from the human body. Wood can absorb and release moisture and thus ensures a naturally regulated indoor climate.

WOOD DOES NOT MAKE WASTE.

Wooden houses can be easily deconstructed at the end of their service life. Individual components can be recycled. What is no longer needed can be burned. In the process, the carbon stored during the growth of the trees is released again and the CO2 cycle is closed.

WOOD protects the climate.

Wooden buildings extend the carbon store from the forest. Every cubic metre of timber built binds one tonne of CO2 in the long term. Every tree felled creates space for new trees, which in turn actively remove CO2 from the air. Every house made of wood helps to avoid CO2 emissions from the production of other CO2-intensive building materials such as concrete or steel.

WOOD grows back.

While other raw materials needed for construction are becoming increasingly scarce, wood is constantly growing back. In Austria's forests, one cubic metre of wood is created every second. The principle of sustainability, which has been practiced for 300 years, ensures that there is always enough wood available. One third of the annual wood growth in Austria would already be sufficient to construct the entire volume of building construction in one year in wood.

WOOD IS AN IMPORTANT ECONOMIC FACTOR.

Using wood as a material - e.g. as a building material - and not burning it immediately increases the added value that can be achieved with the domestic raw material. 300,000 people in Austria live from forests and wood. The forestry and timber industry is one of the largest employers in the country and creates jobs, especially in rural regions.

Wood is a highly developed building material.

Intensive research and development in recent years have produced new wood materials that allow new construction methods. Cross laminated timber - a flat wood product made of several layers of wood laid crosswise on top of each other and glued together - has revolutionised timber construction and is the key to the use of wood in multi-storey construction. The solid timber slab can be used like a reinforced concrete slab. 

Wood brings diversity in design.

Computer-based calculation and manufacturing methods allow completely new forms of design. From wide-span load-bearing structures to high-rise buildings, anything is possible. More and more renowned architects such as Shigeru Ban or Norman Foster are exploiting the potential of timber construction. Probably the oldest construction material in the history of mankind, timber is currently becoming the epitome of modern architecture and the art of building.

Wood is particularly suitable for prefabrication.

Building with wood takes place less on the construction site and more in the production hall. Walls, ceilings or even entire rooms made of wood are prefabricated precisely and independently of the weather in the factory. The finished building components are transported to the construction site and assembled. Construction takes place with little noise and disturbance. The buildings are erected in a very short time. There are no drying times as with reinforced concrete.
