Chapter 1: Introduction – Durability by Design General A sustainable future for America requires sustainable buildings. And sustainable buildings must be durable buildings. And while the mention of the word “sustainability” is usually a trigger for designers and builders to think about energy efficiency and green building materials, building durability cannot be overlooked as .   While the specific design approach and material relationships differ between concrete masonry (b) and wood frame construction (a), similar practices such as the effective placement of insulation, providing continuous drainage plain, thorough flashing, and planning for ventilation apply to both construction types/5.

Lightweight framing can support a range of innovative shading, glazing and lighting solutions to achieve attractive, thermally comfortable homes in all climatic zones. Lightweight framed houses (particularly timber due to its low thermal bridging) can be found in very cold climates such as Scandinavia and Canada through to the very hot tropical.

The deployment of containers as building modules has grown in popularity over the past years due to their inherent strength, modular construction, and relatively low cost.

The upcycled container architecture is being accepted since it is more eco-friendly than using the traditional building materials with intensive carbon footprint.

Buildings in regions with ground snow loads greater than 70 pounds. In climatic zones with extremely cold or hot weather (or high utility rates), there is special incentive to insulate buildings beyond code minimums.

A decision to super – insulate affects the construction of walls more than floors or roofs because walls are generally thinner (being Durable wood-frame construction for all climatic zones book of 2x4s or 2x6s rather than 2x10s or 2x12s).

Though Canadian Wood-Frame House Construction is based on the requirements of the edition of the National Building Code (NBC), it is not a substitute.

The second part will provide an overview on how various variables can influence the energy performance of a building that is placed in all four climatic zones from Romania. Long-term moisture performance is a critical consideration for design and construction of building envelopes in energy-efficient buildings, yet field measurements of moisture characteristics for highly insulated wood-frame walls in mixed-humid climates are lacking.

Like any other building system, wood-frame construction requires reasonable care in its design and construction to provide lasting shelter, comfort and safety. When well-designed and constructed, wood-frame construction is: fast and easy to build and renovate; durable; built from a renewable resource; a natural insulator that is easy to insulate to.
