Version of this project
Forward-thinking architects, school boards and city planners are increasingly choosing sustainable mass timber wood products to build or extend educational facilities. They are selecting pre-manufactured wood products not just because they are so long-lasting and can accommodate short construction timelines to assemble during the school holidays, but for a host of additional well-being benefits for the children.
In the province of Salzburg, Austria, around 80% of newly built schools and kindergartens are constructed with sustainable mass timber products.
This is an excellent example of how lightweight cross-laminated timber (CLT) can facilitate an extension in just seven months, immediately adding much-needed childcare space to a small community.
