Our mission is to increase awareness of embodied carbon footprint and make it a key deciding factor during the early phases of the project, when changes are easiest to make.
Timber construction can be a key element in the movement to transform
the construction industry from a global polluter into a positive force for
embodied carbon storage. However, transparency data for timber and design with BIM modelling are both young and uncoordinated with each other.
Early design process is skewed by legacy assumptions, software, cost
uncertainties and habit, towards less sustainable materials.
As nonprofit advocates for bio-sourced materials, our our mission is to fill gaps with guidance and insight, and share open-sourced infrastructure to help with other teams working towards the same goals.
