Description

Dependency on tropical hardwoods is unsustainable given current rates of use, ecosystem degradation, and slow renewal rates. Fortunately, there are new alternatives that are durable, beautiful, and renewable.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the environmental and social impacts of using tropical hardwoods.
  • Compare alternatives to tropical hardwoods with respect to use, cost, performance, durability, and aesthetics.
  • Understand issues with procurement, detailing, fabrication, installation, and maintenance requirements for alternatives to tropical hardwoods.
  • Understand the challenges of specifying various wood types within SITES and Living Building Challenge projects.
