Teaching materials for industrial wood construction education

The teaching material on industrial wood construction produced by the tPUUr project is intended for use by teachers in secondary schools, universities of applied sciences and universities. The material is intended for use in industrial wood construction education and training as widely as possible. It covers the whole process, from wood material, design, industrial manufacturing and site operations to environmental impacts, repair of wooden buildings and construction economics. The project has been funded by the Ministry of the Environment.

The material was produced in 2021-2022 in a project led by Puuinfo Oy, with the participation of:

  • Vocational College Lapland (Ammattiopisto Lappia),
  • TTS-Työtehoseura,
  • South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences (Kaakkois-Suomen ammattikorkeakoulu),
  • Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (Metropolia ammattikorkeakoulu),
  • Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences (Jyväskylän ammattikorkeakoulu),
  • University of Tampere (Tampereen yliopisto), and
  • Federation of the Finnish Woodworking Industries (Puutuoteteollisuus ry).

The following acted as Puuinfo’s experts:

  • Engineering Office Lahtela (Insinööritoimisto Lahtela),
  • Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luonnonvarakeskus/Luke),
  • Sweco Building services (Sweco Talotekniikka), and
  • HELST Architectural Office (Arkkitehtitoimisto HELST).
