Wood Construction

Wood construction has been an ancient practice that has evolved over the centuries, becoming an increasingly attractive and sustainable alternative in the world of architecture and civil engineering.

Wood, as a construction material, offers a series of advantages that make it an increasingly popular option. Firstly, it is a renewable and biodegradable resource, making it a greener and more environmentally friendly choice compared to other materials such as steel or concrete. In addition, wood has excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties, which translates into greater energy savings and greater comfort for building occupants.

One of the highlights of wood construction is its ability to adapt to different architectural styles, from modern and minimalist designs to more traditional and rustic structures. This versatility allows architects and designers to explore new forms of expression, creating unique and personalized spaces that blend harmoniously into their surroundings.

Beyond its aesthetic and environmental benefits, wood also stands out for its resistance and durability. When properly treated and properly maintained, wood items can last for decades, and even centuries, without losing their structural integrity. This quality is especially important in the field of civil engineering, where the safety and longevity of buildings are key factors.

If you are looking for a durable, environmentally friendly and aesthetically attractive construction alternative, we invite you to discover the possibilities that wood offers. At Ingek, we will be happy to advise you and help you make your wood construction projects a reality.

Wood: A Versatile and Sustainable Material

Wood is a construction material that offers a wide range of possibilities in terms of design and applications. From large-scale structures to small decorative details, wood adapts to all types of projects, allowing architects and designers to create unique and personalized spaces.

One of the main attractions of wood is its sustainable nature. Unlike other materials, wood is a renewable resource that can be grown and managed responsibly, thus reducing the ecological footprint of buildings. In addition, wood has a low carbon footprint, since during its growth it absorbs and stores carbon dioxide, contributing to the mitigation of climate change.

Civil Engineering and Wood Construction

In the field of civil engineering, wood construction has acquired increasing importance. Advances in design and manufacturing techniques have allowed the development of large-scale wooden structures, capable of supporting significant loads and meeting the highest safety standards.

We invite you to review the standard NCh2824 "Wood - Radiata Pine - Units, dimensions and tolerances" where you will find the design and calculation requirements.

Thanks to its strength and durability, wood has become a viable and attractive alternative to traditional materials such as steel and concrete. Additionally, the lightness of wood can simplify construction processes and reduce associated costs, making it an increasingly competitive option in the construction market.

At Ingek, our team of engineers is at the forefront of wood construction, offering innovative and tailored solutions for projects of all types.
