RISE, Wood Building
We are working to increase the possibility of using wood in various construction works, not least high wooden houses and bridges, to contribute to a sustainable society. From the idea stage to the user phase we can contribute with our knowledge and services in the construction and development of homes, premises, halls and bridges. We work with research, development, industrial applications and measurement techniques in wood construction, ranging from testing of products to inspections of wooden structures and state monitoring of constructions (SP Monitor). We develop and evaluate wood constructions, such as multi-storey buildings in wood, wooden bridges, wooden facades and renovations with calculations, detail solutions and mechanical full-scale testing of construction products. We also conduct LCA and LCC analyzes. We have a well-established partnership with universities, industries and suppliers, many of which are internationally leading.
