Please join us for a presentation from Stephanie Wall, who will discuss using wood construction and passive house design to decrease the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and environmental impacts in the building sector.

Using the Wood Innovation Research Lab (WIRL) at the University of Northern British Columbia as a case study, Wall will show how life cycle analysis demonstrates building with engineered wood products as a primary structural material has a significant impact on a structure’s lifetime GHGs, especially in high efficiency buildings where the operational energy is relatively low; the energy used in material selection greatly impacts the overall environmental footprint of the building.

This is a free event, please register to save your seat.
