Defending Workers and The Carbon Stored In Wood From Fire

Defending Workers and The Carbon Stored In Wood From Fire

to take this course

In this course, we explore how accredited applied science infusion wood treatments can help protect mass timber projects, help meet housing demands, and provide a sustainable defense solution for the carbon left behind in wood during sequestration. We discuss how applied science wood treatments can protect structures exposed to wind, rain, snow, and fire. Finally, we review how applied science wood treatments can contribute to defending sustainable building projects.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Describe how cross laminated timber (CLT) framed structures allow buildings to reach the same height as steel high rises while maintaining safety standards for building occupants
  2. Examine why tall mass timber structures with long framing schedules exposed to rain and snow are better prepared with applied science wood treatments
  3. Identify applied fire science treatments to defend tall wood structures from fire and smoke during construction to lower risk of loss and make structures safer for workers
  4. Review how wood products treated with fire inhibitors and biocides may defend against carbon emissions and contribute to sustainable building projects
