Stora Enso has been selected to supply renewable wood materials for the construction of Wisdome Stockholm, a scientific experience arena, which broke ground yesterday.
The new building is part of Sweden’s National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm, and is expected to be a flagship project in sustainable and climate-smart wooden construction.
Stora Enso will supply CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) and LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber), which can replace traditional building materials such as steel and concrete.
Per Lyrvall, country manager Sweden at Stora Enso, said: “We are a proud supplier to this ground-breaking project. Wisdome Stockholm pushes the boundaries and shows what is possible to create with wood as a climate-friendly construction material.
“Through unique projects like this we can strengthen our customer offering as well as our leading position within renewable construction materials.”
The inauguration of Wisdome Stockholm is planned for 2023.
