With a focus on housing and sustainability, there is a growing number of project examples for social housing and affordable homes as well as on custom build solutions.

Each case study comes with direct links to client, architect, contractor and timber supplier, where possible with an aim to facilitate dialogue, collaboration and mutual learning.

Project teams are welcome to submit their case studies via a simple online form on the Wood for Good website.
