Within the field of multi-storey buildings for residential use the company Wood System has revolutionised the market with its innovative P-LAM design which consists of the use of panels made of parallel layer laminated wood for the construction of multi-storey buildings for residential use, offices, shopping centres, hotels, schools, etc., including the construction of high rise buildings for multiple use with dual core in concrete and construction of the residential cells integrally in wood (walls and floors).
The use of wood, an ancient material but at the same time at the cutting edge with its insulating properties from a thermal and acoustic perspective, allows the designing of buildings in energy class A or even "passive buildings". In addition, these constructions enjoy fire protection qualities. Wood, contrary to perception, has excellent fire resistance and anti-seismic properties as well as elastic capacities meaning it is able to withstand even the most severe stresses from wind.
Thanks to the revolutionary patent relating to the wood-steel interconnections developed by the company and to the small dimensions of the materials used in construction - all prefabricated - the times involved in this type of works are very short and highly comparable to the times of completion of structures with hydraulic systems, thermal aspects and external finishes.
