“At Træinformation we are looking forward to experiencing increased interest in the use of wood in construction, we notice the demand on our instructions. It is nice that several keyplayers now take the issue in consideration so the good arguments and experiences regarding the use of wood in construction are now known by a broader circle through several initiatives such as this Building Green confenrence – Build in Wood. We can meet, network and share experiences with many differents groups in the building procedure, therefore we have engaged in this event.”
