Wood construction reaches the university offer

The academic offer on timber construction increases at UNNE to achieve sustainable urban development. We tell you what it is.


In recent years, the  National University of the Northeast  ( UNNE ) has advanced in greater inclusion of the theme timber construction of houses and use of timber in construction. These were included in his undergraduate and postgraduate academic offerings. Also in research, extension and transfer.

From the Faculty of Architecture commented that, in 2016, a meeting was held with authorities of the Government of the Province of  Corrient  e  s . We talked about the inclusion of training proposals related to timber construction. It was an idea to promote this type of  housing  developments and the sustainable use of local and regional forest resources.

The joint planning space did not prosper as expected, but undergraduate and postgraduate training was activated. They are not specifically limited to the construction of wooden houses, but they address this issue within its contents. The project considers wood as a material through which improved performance of buildings is achieved from their energy and environmental behavior.

 The academic offer 

In the bachelor's degree, the  Construcc  i Chair on  the II-B of the FAU-UNNE works on comprehensive design, with criteria of environmental  sustainability  and energy. It is aimed at the construction of houses that apply industrialization, prefabrication and dry construction techniques. In addition, more environmentally friendly building materials are applied, among which is mainly wood.

The postgraduate offer of the FAU-UNNE in the subject of wood construction is the recently initiated career of Specialization in  Energy Optimized Building . It incorporates the analysis of the potentialities and advantages offered by wood building. It analyzes from the point of view of its hygrothermal performance and considering its full life cycle. It requires less energy and generates less negative environmental effects compared to other materials that are more commonly used in construction.

The implementation of more bachelor and postgraduate offers in the subject of timber construction is subject to budgetary allocations. This would cover the incorporation of qualified teaching bodies, the necessary equipment for carrying out workshop and internship work.
