BASAJAUN project: Sustainable wood construction for rural development and urban transformation
Engineered wood products can make a large contribution to transforming the construction sector from a source of carbon into a sink. The main objective is to demonstrate that wood construction chains can be optimized to foster both rural development and urban transformation whilst being connected with sustainable forest management in Europe.
The core idea is to enable the construction of a mid-sized building with the lowest possible hectares of forest. Two full-scale medium-sized demo buildings will be constructed in Finland and France using innovative architecture and a complete digitalization of the ‘forest to building’ chain to show how wood construction can create benefits for rural areas.
