Additional Details: The Wood Products Council’s WoodWorks program is hosting a seminar in Fort Worth, Texas that will examine the environmental performance impacts of using wood as a structural material in non-residential and multi-family buildings. Attendees will learn how to quantify the sustainability of building designs through life cycle assessment (LCA) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). Discussion will include the impact of wood materials on a building’s carbon footprint and the effects of timber harvesting practices on North American forests over the past 100 years. Wood-based framing systems and details will be presented to demonstrate material and energy-efficient options available, including alternate systems and techniques such as cross laminated timber (CLT) and advanced framing. Attendees can earn 2.0 AIA/CES LUs (HSW) credits. This seminar is intended for engineers, architects, builders, and others with an interest in the environmental performance of non-residential and multi-family buildings.
