Design Considerations for Durable Wood Structures

With proper design, detailing and specification, wood structures can provide long and useful service lives while also offering a reduced environmental footprint. The key is careful planning and understanding of environmental loads and other external factors likely to impact a building over its lifetime. This presentation provides an overview of considerations related to durable wood design, including moisture management techniques, preservative treatment specification, and details for controlling termites.
