Mass timber construction

Mass timber construction

Reaching new heights with mass timber construction

Across the construction landscape, innovative, sustainable building materials are taking root. Mass timber products from Stora Enso such as cross-laminated timber (CLT), laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and glued laminated timber (GLT) play an essential role in building sustainable urban areas for the future

Building with high-performance, precision engineered and sustainable massive wood materials or pre-fabricated elements allows you to push beyond wood’s perceived boundaries. You can build strong, stable yet lightweight structures, achieve longer spans and new building heights without complicated fixings, or specialised labour or equipment. 

The result? Shorter construction time, improved resource efficiency, less waste and noise, lower costs, and better health and safety. Mass timber construction also brings benefits to the environment – it is a renewable resource that stores carbon and helps you deliver sustainable development.

Why use mass timber in your next construction project?

  • Quicker, quieter and safer construction for time and cost savings
  • Attractive, innovative designs without sacrificing structural requirements
  • Massive wood is a strong but lightweight, high-quality material
  • Improved thermal insulation and acoustic performance
  • High sustainability credentials for a lower carbon footprint 
  • Certified wood (FSC and PEFC) from traceable sources

Stora Enso is at the forefront of the global megatrend calling for fossil-free materials and new applications for renewable and innovative materials.

You will find sustainability built-in at every step of the way when you work with us:

We know the origin of all the wood we use: 100% comes from sustainable sources. We use various tools to ensure this, including forest certification and third-party traceability systems such as the Forest Stewardship Council's Chain of Custody/Controlled Wood scheme, the Chain of Custody/Due Diligence System of the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), and the ISO 14001 environmental management standard. We always ensure that the forests we harvest wood from are duly regenerated.
