Wood is the future of civil construction

In the age of technology and digital communication, it may seem strange to think that wood has been highlighting in civil engineering. More and more has been invested in research and innovative ways of working with wood.

Techniques such as CLT (Cross Laminated Timber), the manufacture of sturdier blocks of wood that allow the construction of skyscrapers, and wood frame, a construction system that uses reforested wood panels, allow for almost total replacement of the use of cement and other materials of high productive cost, considering the use of the natural resources for its manufacture.

In this scenario, the use of reforested wood in civil construction is in line with the new era we are living, focused on mitigating the damages to the environment caused by our society and lifestyle. The buildings are responsible for the emission of 47% of greenhouse gases, not to mention that buildings consume 40% of global energy, according to the UNEP (United Nations Environment Program).

The teak marketed by TRC comes from planted forests, serving nationally and internationally the naval, civil, aeronautical, furniture, automobile industries, among others.

The use of wood can reduce construction costs by up to 30%, with a low index of material waste, and speed up construction, spending half the time used in masonry construction. The wood can be applied in finishings, as concrete forms and as structural pieces, from lumber, squares and logs.

TRC sells Teak wood in these three formats. Meet our products and talk to our team to know more details.
