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.
The aim of this Work Package is to resolve the problem that current standards for building design, and timber product manufacture, require strength grading on a basis that is not compatible with reclaimed wood, and similarly varied new timber from less usual sources. The objective is for this new basis grading to be fully equivalent to that of new wood of the main commercial species.
Tamara Suligoj, Mitja Plos, Ziga Krofl and Goran Turk from University of Ljubljana answered five questions about the use and recycle of timber in Slovenia.
Mark Hughes and Bahareh Nasiri from Aalto University explain the issues that they want to answer in work package 4 of InFutURe Wood project in a video presentation. In this video presentation, they also describe the progress of this work package and some results they...
