New French public buildings must be made 50% from wood

26 | FEB | 2020

France's government has declared that any new public construction projects financed by the state must contain at least 50% wood or other organic materials by 2022.

These materials have considerably lower embodied carbon than buildings made with other construction materials steel and concrete.

 

The government's announcement is part of a sustainability effort by Macron, who wants France to set an example in the face of climate change. It’s in line with France's Sustainable City plan, launched in 2009, and also with the president's desire for the country to be carbon neutral by 2050.

With the focus on achieving “a city sober in carbon, solidary and capable of adapting to heat waves and floods”, the French minister of territorial cohesion, Julien Denormandie also intends to label 90 new 'eco neighborhoods' creating an association named' France Ville Durable '.

"We made this commitment for the 2024 Olympic Games. There is no reason why what is possible for the Olympic Games is not possible for common buildings," said the minister. He also explained that his decision to introduce the law that encourages the use of bio-based materials in public buildings in France was motivated by the construction of the Paris Olympics complex in 2024.

 

This is a measure that reflects the need for the use of sustainable materials in the construction of buildings and that reiterates the growing importance that wood has noticed over time. At Portilame, there are several areas of intervention in which we enhance the use of wood.

From the regeneration of the existing structure, occasionally intervening with structural reinforcements, to the implementation of new structures taking into account the existing and/ or desired construction system, Portilame suit its intervention.
