Wood, a great solution
in many ways

Wood is the only construction method with a positive carbon footprint because:

  • Once wood is being used, it stores CO2.
  • Wood production generates very little CO2 compared with other building materials.
  • Wood is also very light and easy to transport. It requires much less truck transport to get it to the construction site. This further reduces CO2 emissions.

Prefabricated materials make it possible to build flexible, modular buildings as the possibility of dismantling them has already been anticipated during prefabrication.

Zero waste

Wood is also a recyclable material. The vast majority of wood waste can be recycled. Prefabrication further contributes to this “zero waste” approach, because all the structures are produced in a factory. New circular processes are created when using wood.

The lifecycle of wood

Each stage of the wood transformation process generates waste which is recovered in various ways.

The thermal insulation performance of wood also reduces a building’s energy consumption over its entire lifetime.

Unlike other resources, wood can be regenerated (see ‘environmental responsibility’).

Timber construction makes it possible to reduce carbon emissions in real estate development projects. CFE’s expertise in using wood is widely acknowledged within our sector. One example is the Perle project, which won the Low Carbon Award at the 2019 Green Solutions Awards in the Green Building category.
