Sustainable school buildings for the next generation
The schools of the future are creative, calm environments built to help students thrive as they learn. They’re also made of wood.
Building Concepts by Stora Enso
Over the last 20 years, a revolution has been taking place within the construction industry. Massive-engineered wood elements like CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) and LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber), are allowing us to build higher and larger than ever before. After over one hundred years with concrete and steel, wood is back in town.

Why it's time to build more wooden schools
As children between the ages of seven and 14 spend 90% of their time indoors, with the majority of that time at school, creating healthy learning environments is crucial. Wood has a positive impact on health and wellbeing, as well as a lower carbon footprint – achieving reductions of up to 75% of CO2 emissions compared to traditional construction materials.
New study highlights 10 wellbeing benefits of building with wood
In the developed world, around 90% of our time is spent indoors. In recent times, this has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and wellbeing in indoor environments is more important than ever. 
Wellbeing with biophilic building design
The life cycle of wood has other benefits besides sustainable use of materials: when wood is used for construction, wood can increase the well-being of people spending time in the buildings. Biophilic building designs using wood enhance health and well-being in indoor environments, and make us feel closer to nature.
