Welcome to seminar: Tall Timber – The sustainable high-rise

The advantages of timber construction have become well known: it allows for carbon neutrality, faster construction times and makes new architectural expressions possible.


Timber has lately evolved to become a viable solution for complex and highrise buildings in urban contexts and is no longer reserved for small scale mono-use projects. Join us and industry leaders presenting state of the art tall timber buildings and the innovations that have made them possible.
