Society is increasingly demanding far-reaching economic, functional, environmental technical and aesthetic requirements on buildings. As a result, we can nowadays see a number of clear development tendencies that are important for the future development in the timber construction industry:
• A steadily growing interest for the use of wood and processed wood products.
• A willingness to build tall houses with wood as the main constituent
• An increasingly high degree of refinement and optimization of materials and components by combining them into so-called composite or interacting structures and systems.
• An increasingly high degree of prefabrication of different building components to meet the qualitative and economic demands placed on both the input products and the building as a whole.
