Wood Materials Applied in Civil Engineering and Wood Industry Management in Latvia: Case Study

By Kristīne Fedotova and Sanda Geipele


Positive properties of wood materials and advantages of their application substantiate the wide application of wood materials in the green building process. Latvia has forests; therefore, wood as the building material can be considered as the resource available on the local market. It is one of the oldest materials, which is used in civil engineering, as its positive properties ensure the stable demand for it. Timber is the only widely available renewable material in Latvia, and this fact has a major importance for the decrease in the consumption of the non-renewable resources, therefore, wide application of wood material in the green building is a rather topical issue. The aim of the present research is, analyzing the forest industry management in Latvia, to submit proposals for the sustainable development of the forest industry and to ensure the profitability, simultaneously considering the ecological and social aspects
