The Impulso Verde building, protagonist of the Rothoblaas Mass Timber Seminar
On October 1, 2 and 3, 2022, the Mass Timber Seminar organized by the timber construction company Rothoblaas. During the three days that the meeting lasted, international wood construction professionals were able to participate in presentations, interventions and case studies on the advances and benefits in the sustainable construction market.
On the third day of the meeting, Antonio Lara, architect and researcher at the Polytechnic University of Madrid and project partner, presented the Impulso Verde building. During his presentation he highlighted the elements that make the Impulso Verde a model to follow . Impulso Verde is currently the first Galician public building made of wood, and an example of high-tech structural wood construction that represents a new advance in the fight to reduce the impact of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, emitting 90% less than concrete and steel buildings.
The presentation of the building was very well received and aroused much interest among the people attending.
