Editorial by RNI, February 2015

“The reinvention of wood as an eco-innovative material”, by Maxime Dulieu*

After over a century of productivism, the society is paying the price. The economics outweights the social welfare and leads to many very serious environmental consequences. Thus, the need to change paradigm is undisputable and the sustainable development seems to offer an interesting solution. Its definitions are numerous, sometimes evasive and often imprecise. But what we must emphasize is that the sustainable development suggests a global change in behavior and aims to redefine the social and environmental issues. The implications are significant, logics hitherto absent from the decision-making processes must be re-integrated. The sustainable development will introduce innovative methods to human activities to face these new challenges.

Among these activities, the building sector is one of the worst polluters, it represents about one-third of the final energetic consumption in the OECD countries. But this latent obsolescence of real estate also means that there is significant room for improvement. Therefore, the building sector embodies one of the most promising sectors in terms of energy saving and welfare improvement. This has now resulted in the introduction of innovative solutions in a brand new framework: green building.

Green building is based on the principle that a building should have a minimal negative impact on its environment (natural, social and economic) throughout its life cycle. Builders must pay close attention to the choice of materials and processes used in construction.

One of the most promising solutions comes from a material that is already well established in construction, the wood. This material can indeed now meet the challenges posed by the specifications of eco-construction. Although it has been generally complementary in construction, wood has reinvented itself and now has the potential to replace almost all conventional construction materials.

Beyond the almost overcome technical challenges, today we build multi-storied wooden buildings around the world (London, Vancouver), the properties displayed by the wood are stunning. Whether environmental, economic, or even social, this material shows a simultaneous efficiency that goes well beyond what could be done until now.

Note that this revival of the material is not accidental but a direct result of important research, notably carried out in North America.

Now we must overcome the psychological and cultural obstacles facing the democratization of this new kind of building.
