How easy is it to reuse wood from current buildings?

How should we build today to be able to circulate tomorrow?

The InFutUReWood project looks one step into the future

Innovative Design for the Future – Use and
Reuse of Wood (Building) Components

We aim to answer the questions:

How easy is it to reuse wood from current buildings especially as structural material?

How can the past experience help the future?

We aim to identify the key problem areas and propose technical and methodological solutions to address them. This knowledge will be transferred to industry to avoid inadvertent and unnecessary problems for future generations.
