Stora Enso and TRÄ Group have signed a joint development agreement. The target is to make the design and specification of wooden buildings easier, attaining smarter manufacturing and construction. In the future, designers, builders, owners and residents in wooden buildings will have better tools for lifecycle management, based on facts received through sensors and data analytics, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Stora Enso and TRÄ Group have extensive experience of providing wood construction and promote its positive impact on the environment and on people’s healthy living. Together they will establish a digital platform and toolbox that connects wood construction industry professionals throughout the value chain. The focus is on combining new digital technology innovations with Stora Enso’s wooden building components and experience to create new services. First services are planned to be launched in 2019.
Stora Enso and TRÄ Group already have several different projects ongoing, starting from digital design tools, virtual reality and augmented reality visualisation of building data as well as different sensor data analytics applications to mention but a few.
Stora Enso is a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper globally.
