Timber construction is of enormous strategic importance for urban living areas.  
If we want to establish timber construction as a worthy and equal alternative in the construction business, construction strategies employing timber need to be tested in urban areas.

This research project is aimed at testing the feasibility of erecting eight or more storeys in wood; it is based primarily on four pillars:

  1. Development of a high-rise building with more than 8 storeys.
  2. Fundamental solution for the supporting structure including prefabrication, mounting, fire-protection and personal security.
  3. Technical due diligence including a concept for housing technology.
  4. Market-oriented positioning both in terms of economy and ecology.
