Share your expertise and help wood construction grow
The growing demand for renewable building materials calls for knowledge transfer across the globe. Eric Karsh, Principal at Equilibrium Consulting Inc., encourages all professionals to join Metsä Wood’s Open Source Wood initiative and share innovations in large-scale, modular wood construction.
Modern, “high-tech” timber is a relatively new thing. The fact that engineered wood is still not among the most popular building materials has greatly to do with lack of education. Even today, one can get an architectural or engineering degree without knowing anything about modern wood construction. Open Source Wood is addressing the innovation part of the challenge, but there is also a need for an online university in timber engineering and wood construction.
Join the Open Source Wood initiative. The deadline for submissions is 1st of October 2017.
