Biobased building means building from natural materials. Wood is a sustainable raw material that is a key element. Anyone who chooses to go for CO2 conscious living naturally chooses wood. The difference between cement and wood is enormous. Contribution of using wood in the city is substantial, when it comes to CO2 reduction. Wood is called the “concrete” of the future.
For example, when building with wood, the total CO2 load on a project is way less. It is up to a factor of 4.5 more favorable (less CO2 load) in comparison to a traditional building . And when building with wood instead of steel, this is even a factor of 7 times more favorable. We focus on 6 concepts when it comes to sustainability.
