The main benefit of this course is for the professional who knows the advantages offered by wood for construction in different aspects: sustainability, renewable, recyclability, very low energy consumption for processing and transformation, etc. In addition, it provides you with the fundamentals of the design and calculation of sawn wood and glued laminated wood structures, as well as the quality control and maintenance of the wood put into work.


For technical, regulatory, environmental, energy efficiency and social demand reasons, wood construction is increasing even in countries like Spain, not only for single-family homes but also for medium-rise buildings (6-10 floors). On the other hand, it is a very suitable type of construction for the new housing solutions that are emerging (coliving, cohousing).


Addressed to

-Architects, engineers, experts. -People interested in these issues.


Know the materials, processes and elements that are used in each and every one of the aspects related to the use of wood and derived products as a fundamental element in construction, as well as its advantages and disadvantages compared to other materials.
Learn to design and calculate structures of sawn wood and glued laminated wood, manage and correct the durability of wood on site in different risk classes.
Know the preventive and curative treatments for the protection of wood and learn to develop plans and technical procedures for inspection, quality control and maintenance of the wood put into work.
