Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings. Monday, Aug to Friday, August   The Canadian Wood Council in their publication ‘Energy and the Environment in Residential Construction’ (CWC date uncertain, see web link) report the results of a study using the Athena LCA tool of three identical homes: one constructed with softwood framing and timber I-beam floor joists, one with light frame steel, and one with insulated.

    The book concludes with a chapter on special topics, which includes an exploration of the construction of stairs, railings, porches, and decks. Logically organized for easy reference, this is a thorough yet concise introduction to the world of carpentry and framing for professionals.   This Second Edition features the most up-to-date explanations of today's residential construction systems. From foundation to roof and exterior finishes to interior details, this new edition thoroughly addresses the latest developments in materials and methods of house construction, including energy efficiency, framing, and roofing/5(1).

Wood helps to minimize energy consumption in several ways. In terms of embodied energy, which includes the energy required to extract, process, manufacture, transport, construct and maintain a material or product, life cycle assessment studies (LCA) show that wood significantly outperforms both steel and concrete.

This chart is based on LCA calculations for identical 2,square-foot homes. For project examples, visit WoodWorks’ online gallery and select Light-Frame in the drop-down menu under Building webinars, please visit the searchable webinar archive.

There are several types of light-frame construction, each suited for specific applications: Platform.

This is the most common form of light-frame residential construction today due to its relative ease of building. Platform construction sees individual floors framed separately.

Conventional Residential Construction The conventional American house has been shaped over time by a variety of factors. Foremost, the abundance of wood as a readily available resource has dictated traditional American housing construction, first as log cabins, then as post-and-beam structures, and finally as light-frame buildings.

Reducing energy efficiency in conventional wood-framed houses are thermal bridges: direct paths that allow heat to flow through the studs instead of the insulation. One suggestion for reducing thermal bridging is the staggered stud (SS) wall.

This fourth edition accommodates the latest developments in materials and methods, including new coverage of sustainable building and energy efficiency, multifamily construction, prefabricated building components, and CAD/BIM planning tools in residential construction.

Authoritative coverage of wood light-frame construction, building systems. Keywords: Light-frame, wood construction, walls, floors, structural performance, fire safety, thermal performance, moisture, noise control, acoustics Portions of this manual are based on the proceedings of a conference published as ProceedingsWall and Floor Systems: Design and Performance of Light-Frame Structures by the Forest Products.

Wood can be used in many structural forms such as light-frame housing and small buildings that utilize repetitive small dimension members or within larger and heavier structural framing systems, such as mass timber construction, which is often utilized for commercial, institutional or industrial projects.

This course will prepare students for the MA Unrestricted Construction Supervisor exam. This course provides text, sample questions and illustrations pertaining to the exam, including the most pertinent portions of the International Residential Code, the International Building Code, and the CMR Residential and Base Code Amendments.

This fourth edition accommodates the latest developments in materials and methods, including new coverage of sustainable building and energy efficiency, multifamily construction, prefabricated. The details were adapted from figures in the APA publication, the Advanced Framing Construction Guide, Form M, which highlights construction framing techniques designed to optimize material usage and increase energy efficiency.

Structures built with advanced framing techniques are more resource efficient and offer more space for cavity.
