Innovation

Innovative materials are enabling new opportunities in mass timber construction and lightweight construction products. With newfound durability, earthquake resistance, and fire-retardant properties, mass timber construction and lightweight construction products are helping create sustainable, award-winning architecture in form and function.

Sustainability

The building and construction industry needs lightweight building components. Wood is renewable and reduces supply chain and building emissions. New construction using formaldehyde-free mass timber adhesives mitigates VOCs. Existing buildings must be renovated to be more energy efficient and reduce heating and cooling to advance climate goals, making buildings future-ready.

Contributing to sustainable construction

Construction plays an important role in climate protection. Climate goals cannot be met without wood construction. Increasingly, steel and concrete are being replaced with next-generation mass timber, manufactured with non-VOC polyurethane adhesives, and engineered for durability and stability.
