Innovative Wood Products and Building Systems

Research in this area will identify how to apply new technologies in emerging wood-based materials as well as engineering and design into new and sustainable building systems such as wood-biopolymer based composite materials. These buildings will include novel and innovative design elements but will also take into account guidelines surrounding fire safety, acoustic performance, structural integrity and overall durability.

As part of this, researchers will conduct life cycle analyses and environmental impact assessments to demonstrate the materials they use are sustainable. Overall, the initiative will improve the capability to commercialize the next generation of wood-based building systems.

We are currently building this network through a consultative process. For more information, please consult our next workshop or contact us.
