Presenting and discussing the themes of “LVL, perfect fit for wood building”, “The present and the future of the
LVL industry”, and
"Imaginative use of LVL".
Wood and engineered wood products as a building material are trending globally. Changes in legislation have opened new possibilities for wooden buildings. Being a material that is flexible to work with, wood has also gained a strong reputation as the go-to material when one wants to build in a way that emphasizes a small carbon footprint, and in a sustainable way.
Professor and Director of the School of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and an architect and researcher of emergent materials and applications. A former Fulbright scholar to Japan, he has authored eight books on advanced and sustainable materials for architecture and design. His work has been published in over 70 architecture, design, science, and news journals.
We are already seeing LVL being used creatively. We are not only seeing high towers and buildings with imaginative shapes being built with LVL but also for example wind turbines on a commercial level. Not forgetting furniture and other similar applications. Where do we see LVL being used today and where it could be used tomorrow? Is anything limiting the end-product innovations created from LVL?
Modvion is a Swedish Engineering and Industrial Design company developing modular designs in renewable Engineered Wood Products to simplify and improve construction logistics. Modvion develops modular wind turbine towers in LVL.
Largely adopted by builders, architects, and structural engineers, LVL offers not only a remarkable design versatility but also one of the best usage of raw material, being based on veneer peeling technology.
Who are the current LVL suppliers in Europe and how is manufacturing capacity forecasted to grow over the next few years? How about in North America? What will be the headwinds and tailwinds for LVL development over the next few years?
