Multi Storey Timber Construction

This summer school focuses on being able to design and build multi-storey buildings as timber constructions in the future

Multi Storey Timber Construction  

Summer School

Thinking about multi-storey timber construction opens up new ways to build innovatively, efficiently and in an environmentally conscious way. The construction industry has become aware of these opportunities and is asking for skills and expertise in order to be able to develop projects within this field.

About the course
The course will be based on cases and will focus on different aspects on how to work with multi storey timber constructions.

During the course, we will disseminate international state-of-the-art projects, as well as focus on pre-fabrication in the construction process and how to work with CLT (cross-laminated timber). In addition, the participants will be taught specifically on the topic of sustainability within construction, as well as the value and advantage of working with multi-storey timber constructions. Statistics, knowledge of fire safety and circular design (design for separation) will be central subjects in the processing of the different projects.

The Summer School will be structured around cases featuring multi-storey timber construction design, which will be processed in teams. The course will finish with the presentation of a final project from each team.

More information and application can be found on our English website.
