"This paper examines the environmental impacts of a five-story hybrid apartment building compared to timber and reinforced concrete counterparts in whole-building life-cycle assessment using the software tool, One Click LCA, for the estimation of environmental impacts from building materials of assemblies, construction, and building end-of-life treatment of 50 years in Finland."

"In this study, Tuupala wooden school in Kuhmo and as a reference Tuupala stone school and a primary school in town of Vaala were monitored for temperature, indoor air humidity, carbon dioxide content, particulate matter and total concentration of volatile organic compounds by IoT sensors for 10 months. [...] Based on the results, the wooden school of Tuupala is an excellent learning environment for its schoolchildren. It has a quiet and peaceful noise level. The variation in humidity is lower there than in the control school, and stress of schoolchildren is lower than in the classes of the control school. The difference in the stress is in some time periods statistically significant."
