Stora Enso joins new partnership with Build-in-Wood

Published on :Friday, September 3, 2021

Stora Enso, one of the leading providers of sustainable wood-based solutions for the construction industry will support the Build-in-Wood Consortium! Stora Enso has decided to especially support this project with focus on the development of the building system and in the area of component optimisation.

It is expected that this new project will benefit from the extensive experience in prefabrication and wood-based building component from Stora Enso. In this project Stora Enso will replace the Norwegian partner Splitkon who has decided to discontinue following Covid-19 uncertainties.

Stora Enso wood products “We believe that everything that is made from fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow. This sets an especially tough challenge for our buildings, which should also be produced completely from renewable materials and become a corner stone of the circular economy of the future. There is a huge challenge ahead of us and together with Build-in-Wood we want to push this further!”

Build-in-Wood will soon involve Stora Enso and will be enriched with their work experience in development of building concepts, their in-depth expertise in building physics (e.g. acoustics) as well as their longlasting market engagement across Europe and European cities of all sizes.

Stora Enso will primarily focus on taking care of the technical work packages such as the Materials and Components or Building Systems. At the same time, they will collaborate in market related work packages such as business development, as well as communication and dissemination.
