Wood Industrialized Construction

Overview

Industrialized Wood Construction through well managed forest resources can reduce wildfire risk, while delivering decarbonized buildings that are healthier for occupants, assembled rapidly, and adaptable. Passive House is a global ultra low-energy building standard that offers resilience in the face of wildfires, energy insecurity, and a warming world.

This series of recordings are from the Regenerative Construction Ecosystems symposium which focused on how wood industrialized construction deployed to meet the Passive House standard, can lead to decarbonized environments that are resilient and adaptable to our changing environments.

The Industrialized Wood Construction presentations and moderated discussion will focus on design, planning and erection of mass timber buildings, and how universities are educating future workers and leaders for this field.

The symposium is intended to provide a framework for practitioners, academics, developers, builders; really to address climate adaptation, better buildings, better environments..."
