Law Library of Congress Report on Mass Timber Construction

The Law Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. has published a comparative law report on Mass Timber Construction:

It looks at the laws and regulations on the use of wood in the construction of new buildings in Australia, Austria, Canada, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Some countries or regional jurisdictions have legislation promoting the use of wood in new construction in general or at least in government buildings. Some have policies recognizing the use of wood as part of clean growth plans. Italy, on the other hand, discourages the use of wood in tall buildings due to seismic conditions.

The Law Library of Congress is the world’s largest law library, with a collection of over 2 and a half million volumes from all ages of history and virtually every jurisdiction in the world.

Over the years, it has published dozens of comparative law reports which are a treasure trove for legal research on a huge variety of issues.
