Build in Wood

The sustainable arguments for wood construction are manyThe construction industry is one of the biggest contributors to the negative climate impact and building in wood can save us a lot of carbon emission. Then why don’t we use more wood? The biggest challenges are the lack of knowledge and hands-on experiences. Political and legal matters also make it more difficult, time consuming and expensive to choose wood and timber solutions.

Let’s change that! At Build in Wood hundreds of stakeholders, practitioners and politicians will gather to discuss and improve the potential of building with wood. Join us to share knowledge and overcome the challenges together in order to ultimately build more in wood.

We will be back with a new event in Copenhagen 18-19 May 2021. We hope to see you!
