Description

Wood as a structural element has been used for centuries. During the first decades of the 20th century, with the appearance of concrete and steel, it became temporarily overlooked.

Nowadays, wood structures are not only competitive with common steel and concrete structures alternatives, but also better performers when it comes to fire resistance, seismic behaviour, ecological rationalism, economy in costs and aesthetic arguments.
