The development of modern timber construction has meant that today there are several, on the market, established building systems. These building systems involve different technical solutions but also partly different business models.
Within RISE, we have worked with the development of a number of these building systems and work continuously to support the industry in the development of these through calculation, testing and evaluation. The most common systems are based on:
Our experts can help with many different types of issues at all stages of the construction process and for all types of actors. Examples of our business can be supporting property owners with knowledge and training before starting to build with wood. In other cases, we can support wooden house manufacturers with testing / calculation to improve the technical performance of the building systems, such as how to best meet acoustics or fire requirements.
RISE can contribute with expertise in a number of the technical issues that are common for wooden structures, such as:
RISE has also contributed to a number of handbooks for building with wood. Several of these are published by Svenskt Trä such as: CLT handbook, Glulam handbook and Design of Timber Structures. In addition, there are also a number of manuals that can be ordered via the Svensk byggtjänst, such as Fire safety in timber buildings, Sound insulation in timber buildings, Wooden balconies etc.
