Zinc & wood synergy from a sustainable building point of view

Blending materials is a particularly effective architectural strategy in itself as it can provide solutions to a range of various concerns.

When wood and rolled zinc are used together, the combination of these two materials provides pertinent solutions that are:

  • elegant (e.g. warmth of wood, modernity of rolled zinc)
  • technical (e.g. rigidity of wood, durability of zinc)
  • functional (e.g. support of wood, protection of rolled zinc)
  • economic (e.g. development of local industry and small companies)
  • and environmental (e.g. low grey energy of wood, recycling of rolled zinc)

The majority of VMZINC solutions use wood for support in the rolled zinc constructive system.
