“Perspective”, the highest wooden multi-storey office building in France, will be built with LVL by Stora Enso.
The project will comprise seven floors reaching 30 meters in height. The structure combines a glulam post and beam system with LVL panels in X grade in the floors and as support for the concrete slab.
The main reasons for using LVL were its low weight and short construction time thanks to the high level of prefabrication. The building work started in June 2017 and is planned to be finished at the end of 2017.
The ambition is to have an energy-positive building and it will be BREEAM Very Good certified.
