Laboratory for Timber Constructions IBOIS
In recent years, the necessity of using renewable and sustainable resources in the building sector has become obvious, and interest in timber as a building material has revived. Toward this end, Laboratory for Timber Constructions (IBOIS) aims to develop a next generation of timber construction using a wide range of timber products from natural wood resources to engineered products, such as Laminated Veneer Lumbers.
