Wood offers a combination of natural structural properties and aesthetics, suiting it for a range of applications in the built environment. Those light frame construction and mass timber systems, all of which have applications across building types. WREN | Architecture: Togawa Smith Martin | Photography: Kevin Korczyk Innovations in wood products and building systems are making the material competitive with steel in larger applications, which demand long spans and tall walls. In many cases, these products reinvent centuries-old uses of wood to address contemporary design and engineering challenges. Wood products deliver several benefits to the project, its occupants and the local community: ● Cost. Wood can be a suitable replacement in applications that use concrete, masonry and steel, and is frequently quicker and easier to erect, especially in tight job sites. ● Sustainability. Wood products are carbon-efficient and typically more sustainable than comparable materials. ● Aesthetics. Left exposed, wood structural elements offer impressive visuals that accentuate a project’s design. ● Safety. Design and engineering analysis, along with supporting research, shows that wood meets and often surpasses building code requirements for fire, seismic performance and wind resistance.
