In a post-pandemic world, the requirements being placed on office spaces have changed. For a start, today’s modern office needs to be more attractive than the home environment. There needs to be a reason to go there.
Making use of natural elements such as wood has been shown to reduce blood pressure and improve productivity in office spaces, according to dozens of different research studies.
But more than that, wood is a low-carbon material that grows back again and again in sustainably grown forests. The emissions from wood construction materials are much lower than traditional construction and building materials such as concrete and steel.
On top of that, logistics and transport emissions can be reduced considerably when building with a material like wood.
