Possibilities of wood construction
As a leading supplier of wood products, Metsä Wood knows from experience that Nordic premium wood is the best renewable raw material in the world. When used right, it saves money, time and nature.
Fast, light, green construction
Using prefabricated wood elements makes both the design and construction phase easy and quick. Wood is an extremely light-weighted material compared to other building materials. This enables long spans of load-bearing elements, and also saves costs in logistics.
Wood is a renewable material that has a suprisingly small carbon footprint during the whole lifecycle and can be used in buildings to store carbon. Wooden construction materials can be produced with 100% bioenergy and they can be recycled after the usage.
Metsä Wood's Kerto® is a laminated veneer lumber (LVL) product used in all types of construction projects, from new buildings to renovation and repair. Kerto is incredibly strong and dimensionally stable. Kerto delivers its high strength from the homogeneous bonded structure.
