Natural, renewable, recyclable and environmentally sustainable; wood is a preferred building material. It is safe, sturdy and dependable – the best insulator against heat and cold and considered by many to be the most energy-efficient building material in use today.
The warm and natural attributes of a wood design can also contribute to an overall sense of wellbeing, improving performance and productivity in offices and other community buildings.
Building with wood is also economical compared to other construction materials. Wood products can cost as much as 30% less than most substitutes for framing an average home. New construction practices and engineered wood products also have beneficial attributes such as greater strength and architectural opportunities, improved indoor air quality and energy efficiency that make wood a top choice for builders.
