The end results provide practical examples of how using Metsä Wood’s Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) can provide fast, light and green solutions for housing. The winning design is based on portal frames made of Kerto LVL S-beams. The basic solution is easy to extend into multistorey buildings as well.
