CBS : expertise of old wood and recommendations for their reuse


Le Bois International, July 2022

"Thanks to the technology developed by Concept Bois Technologie (CBT) embodied in the Sylvatest and Polux tools, Concepts Bois Structure (CBS) offers to keep in place the maximum possible of the wood of an old building during its rehabilitation, by guaranteeing that they are adapted to their new use : it allows an efficient use of the wood resource, which is vital today.

Thanks to its expertise and recommendations, the wood design office has just given a second life to the structures of the Entrepôts des magasins généraux de Paris (EMGP), a 150-year-old building transformed into a Hilton hotel with very high acoustic performance."
