Concrete and steel production, upon which we have relied for the last 150 years to build cities, is the leading cause of the world’s current CO2 crisis. As the world rapidly approaches 9 billion people – three times what it was in a less than a single lifetime – our fragile planet is desperate for sustainable alternatives. The unifying vision of the those who drive the revolution, Element5 among them, see timber as the essential building material of the 21st century.
A revolution in construction has begun...
...and it is radically changing the way buildings are constructed for the better.
The environmental benefits of building with wood are well documented. Of the three principal building materials used today, wood is the only one that is renewable. From an ecological standpoint, wood is also the only material that can provide a net carbon benefit, helping mitigate climate change by providing long-term storage for atmospheric carbon. In a word, wood is the ‘sustainable’ choice.
Element5 is a dedicated team of designers, craftspeople and assembly experts. We serve a community of forward-thinking architects, owners, developers, and general contractors to help effect change by providing timber construction cost consulting, design consulting, engineering, fabrication and assembly services. We strive to make a positive contribution to communities, the environment and future generations.
