Forest resources and wood products for high-rise buildings: experiences

The construction of high-rise buildings requires highly performant products manufactured from species demonstrating performance levels (namely mechanical properties) that are compatible with this type of use.

The objective of these meetings is to show how lumber processing companies meet these challenges, with regard to the qualification of wood and the manufacture of structural products (CLT, for example). Experience feedback will be provided on an international level so as to understand how the various manufacturers meet the expectations of the different markets and to share
the successes and even imagine the adaptation of certain models to other countries.
