Fully open Building Concepts with tools and manuals

Aiming to be the leading building solutions provider in wood construction

Stora Enso promotes open Building Concepts based on various building components and products like CLT and LVL. The building concepts are driven by a cost competitive analysis that is carried out together with our customers and specifiers in key markets. We develop all our Building Concepts together with a recognized 3rd party, well known by customers or specifier.

Building Concepts by Stora Enso leads the way in the wood industry by linking architectural guidelines to building systems. This allows the specifier to better understand how to build with wood and find options feasible for wood construction.

Detailed design manuals for a sustainable construction industry 

The Building Concepts are explained in detailed design manuals emphasising different chapters:

  • The manuals detail all phases from designing to maintenance of the buildings. They cover also the building physics issues for different countries. Thermal, acoustic, seismic and fire topics are also covered in the manuals.
  • The erection and installation.
  • Sustainability is one of Stora Enso’s core values. We know that building with wood is a key success factor in fighting climate change.
  • These new concepts are the best way to show how the carbon footprint could be improved if you use our Building components. We provide all arguments with carbon footprint or EPD documents to be the most sustainable building system ever done.

Today the focus is on 6 main countries: Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Sweden and United Kingdom. It means that our concepts include country specific details according to domestic regulations like fire safety or acoustic requirements.
