Lightweight Construction Means: Safe Construction

The EU research project ELISSA, with the participation of Knauf and Cocoon, has investigated how a building with a lightweight steel construction behaves during an earthquake.

The result is the following: constructions withstand even shocks of magnitude 6. Thus, human lives could be effectively protected in an emergency.
