“The architectural quality of timber alongside its mechanical performances make it possible to include it in many structures with a high degree of freedom of form and assembly.
Timber structures make it possible to build any type of structure while offering environmentally friendly and cost effective solutions”

Timber is the only material that requires so little energy for its production (dry process).

Timber stores CO2:

1 m3 used in building = 1 tonne less CO2 in the atmosphere
