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.
You have the chance to work in our InFutUReWood project by joining the Timber Construction – UPM Research Group in Madrid!
Introduction: Issues concerning the reuse of timber members as structural elements in new constructions are relatively new and not well known. We hope to establish non-destructive methods that will estimate mechanical properties of reclaimed timber, to assess if the...
We liked a lot reading about the Itakura construction method and though this project is a great source of inspiration
