Re-use in timber construction

The English term “re-use” refers to the new or reuse of a building component that is recovered by deconstruction at the end of a building’s useful life. In the concept of the circular economy, the equivalent reuse of components is aimed for as an optimum. This eliminates the need for costly recycling and production processes, saves energy and allows components to be reused promptly after they have been recovered. An obligation to take back used components promotes this reuse and helps to establish the circular economy.


Sustainable building with wood

Wood is a renewable and natural raw material that stores CO2 and thus relieves the environment. Buildings made of wood thus have a positive effect on the atmosphere and always remain a source of raw materials due to the reusability of wood.
