Wood Building Summit is one important channel to share new and old knowledges on sustainable and efficient wood building. To spread good examples but also spread mistakes and what to learn from them. We need to know when and how to use both materials, design and construction methods in order to deliver a sustainable society. Tyréns AB is one of Sweden’s leading community development consultancies and all our solutions must be processed through a sustainable idea. Tyréns is owned by a private foundation and this makes it possible to commit ourselves to research and development within the urban and rural development sector. We are driven by a thirst for knowledge and work closely with universities and other research institutes. So in that perspective – we will not miss the Wood Building Summit.

- For us at Martinsons, building with wood is part of our DNA. With a history dating back to 1929, our passion for technology and construction has made our company a pioneer force within constructions based on glulam and cross-laminated timber. Today, we recognize that wood is a key element for a sustainable development and we are always looking to build strong long-term partnerships with both public and private sector actors. Wood Building Summit is an arena that will help us achieve that.

This is an important venue to present and market my professional standpoints and to meet and interact with other parties and organisations concerning wood building and technology

In northern Sweden there is a group of sharp actors; municipal, private and academic, who cooperate in a confidence-building manner. You will find the results during Wood Building Summit. We would like to show our contribution and therefore think that our presence at Wood Building Summit is obvious.
