Future is built from wood

Combined with sustainable forestry, wood is set to become the number one building material of the future.

People have used trees for construction since prehistory. In the last 30 years, technological developments have taken wood from its traditional roots to become the most innovative building material.

Various mass timber products and pre-fabrication processes enable taller, safer and more efficient buildings which are healthy and aesthetically pleasing. When looking at the whole life-cycle of a building, wood is the most sustainable material choice by far.
