Themes: Tall wood buildings, Massive wood, Carbon footprint. In this issue, we take a look at carbon footprint calculations and at experiences and results from a comparative study. It is a sensitive subject. When carbon dioxide emissions are brought up in conversation, the climate tends to not be the only thing that heats up. Controversy and denial do not, however, reduce emissions.
Theme for this issue is versatile wood. There are plenty of opportunities for increasing the use of wood, as it is a construction material with numerous potential applications. Wood does not always need to be used on a grand scale, such as in the new exquisite interior of Isku’s property in Lahti or the wooden terrace built by a Helsinki family to liven up the concrete jungle. Wood use can also be increased in small details. Even the tiniest amount is always more than nothing.
Theme for this issue are wooden homes. A variety of resident surveys show that people want wood in their homes, particularly in visible surfaces. Solid wood construction is finally making this a reality. Adding wood surfaces to other types of apartment production, not just solid wood construction, would also be relatively easy. It is a bit of a shame that it is not common practice. Resident surveys show that such wood surfaces would be more than enough to fulfil most people’s wishes. According to the surveys, the material used in the building framework itself is not of particular importance to residents.
