"Treet" is a 14‐story wood apartment building in Bergen, Norway which is scheduled to be built during 2014-2015. The building will be one of the tallest wood buildings in the world.

This video will review the building system which consists of pre-fabricated building modules. Glulam is the main load bearing system and carries all the vertical loads in this building. Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is used in the elevator shaft, internal walls and balconies but is not a part of the main load bearing system. The owner for Treet recommended using wood in the building as wood is a sustainable construction material.
