Whitepaper: 10 advantages of building with mass timber

Benefits of mass timber – 10 advantages of building with mass timber and the research to back it up 

If you’re reading this, you’re hopefully considering building with wood, and that makes us smile! 

To help you get on board with this incredible shift in construction, we’ve created a list of the top ten reasons to build with wood. This simple, straightforward guide answers the most common questions and makes that journey from “What if it was built with wood” to “Timber all the way!” easy. Each point is designed as an entry point for further inquiry to help you make informed decisions in an uncomplicated, easy-to-understand way.

Wood boldly goes where no other material can – some of our favourite 2024 examples

Stora Enso’s Wood Products division recently held a competition looking for the examples of our partner’s building projects that could only be built with mass timber.

We received some truly impressive examples of how mass timber’s lightweight properties and precise factory-built elements are being leveraged to fill in even the hardest-to-reach spaces. 

The projects left us feeling incredibly hopeful about curbing urban sprawl and building sustainably, and we just had to share some of our favourites with you here.
