Building Resilience: Expanding the Concept of Sustainability
Explore wood construction in the context of resilience and sustainability, including performance during natural disasters, building code compliance, and the relevance of wood’s light carbon footprint and low embodied energy.
Connection Options for Wood-Frame and Heavy Timber Buildings
In wood buildings, effective connections are critical to building performance, especially during extreme weather conditions. Learn more about connection options for modern wood structures, both light wood-frame and heavy timber.
Design and Construction of Taller Wood Buildings
With rising demand for new urban buildings, and increased interest in sustainable and efficient construction, the potential for tall wood buildings is growing. Learn more in this AIA accredited CEU.
Designing for Durability
Even as the use of wood is expanding, one significant characteristic of wood buildings is often underestimated: their durability. Learn design and construction techniques to control moisture and insect impacts.
Designing for Earthquakes
Earthquakes cannot be prevented, but sound design, research and code compliance can reduce their effects. See how wood has become a proven choice for seismic-resistive construction.
Designing for Fire Protection
Wood buildings can be designed to meet rigorous standards for performance, which is why the International Building Code (IBC) allows the use of wood in a wide range of building types.
Designing for High Winds
Discover techniques for strengthening buildings against high wind forces by addressing fundamental interactions between wind loads and building material properties.
Designing Modern Wood Schools
Using wood in school construction can accommodate a growing number of students with structures that are cost effective, and to do so while creating high-performance buildings that are safe, resilient, and appealing.
Designing Sustainable, Prefabricated Buildings
Learn how prefabricated wood components can help to solve many design and engineering challenges such as material and process efficiency, environmental performance and life safety.
Exceeding Thermal Performance Goals by Choosing Wood
Discover how wood meets and exceeds performance requirements for commercial and nonresidential buildings, including energy efficiency, comfort, durability, code compliance, structural integrity and sustainable outcomes.
How to Calculate the Wood Carbon Footprint of a Building
This course explains the principal methods and tools that are used to assess carbon footprint in the context of building materials. It includes a primer on product terminology and highlights ways to track and assure wood comes from sustainable forests.
Innovative Architectural Design Strategies Using Wood
Explore innovative and repeatable uses of wood in building design, including aesthetic, environmental and structural strengths of wood. Additional discusion points on code compliance, construction costs, tight labor markets, sustainability and biophilic design.
Mass Timber in North America
See why designers are seeking the strength, stability and design flexibility of mass timber to push beyond wood’s perceived boundaries, achieving building heights and spans once reserved for concrete, steel or masonry.
Maximizing the Design Benefits of Podium Construction
Limited space and rising costs have prompted developers and architects to re-think building design. See how podium construction allows for greater density and more rentable square footage while also reducing material and labor costs.
Multifamily Mid-Rise Wood Buildings
This course explores the sustainability and economic benefits, and code requirements of using wood construction for mid-rise multifamily or mixed use buildings.
Opportunities for Wood in Low-Rise Commercial Buildings
Learn more about the use of wood framing systems in low-rise commercial projects, including code implications, cost impacts and implications of multi-tenant occupancies.
Optimizing Acoustic Performance of Wood Buildings
Noise has a great impact on the built environment and its occupants, with numerous exterior and interior sources. Discover ways to integrate acoustic design to create high performance wood buildings that also enhance occupant health and well-being.
Structural Wood Building Systems
Whether designing for light frame or mass timber structural systems, see how wood can help increase your project's versatility, sustainable supply chain, benefits to occupants, as well as thermal, acoustic, seismic and fire performance.
The Business Case for Building with Wood
Developers face tough challenges with reducing construction costs, securing tenants and differentiating properties in a crowded market. Learn five ways wood construction is helping meet market demands.
The Impact of Wood Use on North American Forests
As green building has evolved beyond energy efficiency, selection of structural materials is seeing increased focus. Learn how wood from sustainably managed forests is viewed as a responsible choice.
The Role of Wood Products in Green Building
Material choice greatly affects the environmental impact of buildings, both during construction and over the building’s lifecycle. Learn about tools and certifications for green building in this CEU.
Wood and Evolving Codes: The 2018 IBC and Emerging Wood Technologies
Learn more about structural wood use in residential and low- to mid-rise commercial construction, including light frame and mass timber construction design options.
Wood and Indoor Environment
Discover how using wood as a structural or finish material impacts indoor air quality, acoustics and well-being. This course also covers research supporting the growing trend of biophilic design.
