As I explained, five years ago we published the research report showing that we could build tall wood-framed buildings.
At that time, there was a lot of criticism on the Internet. As might be expected, a lot of people reacted, saying that wood-framed high-rises were vulnerable to fire, termites, and so on. In just five years, I think there has been enough discussion and research to show that high-rise wood-framed buildings can be built very safely.
Right now, we are working on the design of high-rise buildings in Brazil, China, France, Canada and the United States. More and more, I think it's becoming an international trend. Yet more importantly, we are moving from demonstration buildings to buildings that are financed by commercial investors. We are not necessarily talking about 20- to 30-storey buildings, but six to 12-storey buildings.
This is the future. This will have a major impact on the use of solid wood.
