Wooden Construction at progress: Nordic KNOW -research project points to growing potential

Wooden multi-story construction (WMC) has strong potential to satisfy diverse housing needs of urban consumers, enhance promotion of climate-wise construction within municipalities, and boost competitiveness of the companies in the forestry-wood value-chains. KnockOnWood project is especially seeking for solutions to support the development of WMC in Finland and Sweden. However, the results may bring valuable insights also for other countries with similar market conditions.

Launched at early 2021, the research project has already during its first year generated substantial amount of new information regarding wooden multi-story construction. The research findings provide valuable insight in the rapid evolution of the sector.

Dasos (Olli Haltia) is represented in the Advisory Board of KNOW.
