© 2022 Authors.Wood is a natural resource that is renewable, easily recoverable and stores carbon dioxide, making wood constructions a feasible alternative to attaining significant sustainability targets. In the '90s, technological attendees invented the laminated wood beams, and it begins to apply the ingenious truss solved principle to the building structures of laminated and plywood. A new generation hybrid construction method dubbed the Urban Timber (UT) System was designed to support the timber buildings based on the diagnostic vulnerabilities of wooden structures. The system was defined and demonstrated while taking into account structural behavior, architectural value. Everything else is left to the designer's discretion, his sensitivity, and, above all, his ability to leverage technology from the many advantages and many-sided. The research seeks to inform future generations about the predicted sustainable features of wooden structures, which are touchstones of the global construction industry, under the usual circumstances of a new industry. To that end, it has proven why industrialized timber building systems are a fundamental problem in the context of the present environmental, social, and psychological discussion and the utilization of distinct construction approaches using sustainable materials. Timber is seen as the future building material, according to the findings.
