Construction in wood and rational forest management
Wood Shapers is a new Belgian and Luxembourg company, launched at the beginning of 2020 by BPI Real Estate and CFE Contracting. Its ambition is to rethink the real estate sector by adopting a sustainable development approach through the optimization of construction processes. Wood Shapers stands out in particular by the development of large-scale projects using wood as the principal material, which is the only building material that stores CO2. The skills available within the company range from the design to the delivery of the project, including the engineering department and the prefabrication of wooden structures. By reforming the construction industry thanks to an integrated construction process, Wood Shapers is able to realize sustainable, pleasant and healthy spaces faster and more efficiently. In the same spirit of sustainable development, Wood Shapers committed to plant 2,000 trees in Belgium in 2020, in partnership with the Belgian Royal Forest Society (SRFB), a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of forests and the promotion of their sustainable management. Using wood as a construction material has many ecological advantages. Its performance in the area of thermal insulation, in particular, will enable a reduction of the energy consumption of the building over its entire lifespan and, unlike other resources, wood has a natural regeneration cycle, on condition that we support a responsible long-term management of forests, as Wood Shapers does, by cutting down some trees in order to stimulate the growth of others, which is synonymous with the reduction of carbon emissions.
