Building Better Buildings

The Canadian Wood Council recently released a document called “Green By Design: Building Better Buildings”:

“As designers strive more and more to design green buildings that lessen the demand on the environment, the benefit of wood construction is becoming ever more apparent. Wood makes a major contribution to improving the overall environmental performance of any commercial or residential building by reducing energy use, reducing resource use, and reducing environmental impacts.

In addition to adhering to the forest management requirements, many manufacturers are implementing forest certification and chain-of-custody tracking systems so they can demonstrate the origin of the products and adherence to sustainable forest management practices.

Wood brings you the best of all worlds – proven construction benefits, along with sound environmental advantages – from the forest floor to the construction site. That makes wood the natural choice for today’s designers and builders.”
