Wood construction under the influence of climatic change

Project start /

Buildings constructed from wood help in the observance of environmental and climate targets. They conserve resources and serve as CO2 storage devices. But are the wooden buildings constructed today capable of withstanding the future effects of climate change? This is the key question for this project. We analyze and evaluate the suitability for use of wooden buildings in Germany, taking into account the expected climatic conditions for the next 100 years, i.e. up to the year 2115. Using the knowledge gained, we then derive strategies for action.
