Dr. Andreja Kutnar, InnoRenew CoE director, was a member of the Steering group that helped preparing the “Debunking Timber Myths: New Booklet Sheds Light on Common Misconceptions”.
Despite the many advantages of building with timber, the mass adoption of timber as a building material is evolving at a rather slow rate. This is due in part to the many misconceptions about building with timber, or common “timber myths”. The newly published booklet “Discussing Timber Myths” dispels the most common of these myths. It simultaneously opens discussions around contested topics such as fire safety of timber construction, wood availability, and forestry best practices.
