Build in Wood – The dilemmas of wood

Wood and timber constructions are surrounded with a lot of dilemmas. Why do we talk so much about skyscrapers when we don’t build that many? How can we document the good financial cases, so more contractors and entrepreneurs will invest in wood constructions? How much wood from open constructions can we show in a building before we compromise with other important features? Should you choose a hybrid solution to accomplish stiffness and better acoustics in spite of the amount of added concrete?

At Build in Wood, you get knowledge to make choices in relation to wood and timber constructions on a more well-informed and nuanced basis – and that knowledge you can share with your colleagues and others in the industry. Throughout 2 full days you can get in-depth with wood and wood constructions. NB: The majority of the conference and program will be in Danish.
