The factory, which "contain" the operations required to transform raw materials into panelsX-lam is designed to become a real hub for the insertion of a new technique in Sardinia. A building that is not simply the physical location of the panels are physically built, but also aplace of training of skills directly related to the factory or not. A place for the promotion of wooden panels, of sustainable management of forests and living in wooden houses, action required for the successful introduction of a new construction technique as X-lam, whichchange some aspects of living which are well established for some time.
