More and more often, carbon calculations are an important component of building design as ownership and design teams strive for more sustainable structures. As architects and engineers embrace carbon accounting as part of the design process, it is important to understand how to correctly account for wood and biogenic carbon using early-stage analysis and whole building life cycle assessment (WBLCA).
WoodWorks will hold an Embodied Carbon Assessments of Wood From Early-Stage Analysis to WBLCA webinar on August 10th from 1 to 2:30 pm EST
This webinar aims to clarify the benefits of wood construction in relation to both embodied carbon and carbon storage and provide practical guidance on how to quantify these benefits.
Participants will hear from several design teams to learn more about the carbon accounting strategies they have used, both early in design and once the project is more fully developed.
WoodWorks will also introduce a new resource, Considerations and Worksheet for Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment of Mass Timber Buildings.
Presenters for this webinar include:
Erin Kinder, and Chelsea Drenick, WoodWorks
Alexis Feitel, KL&A Engineers & Builders
Lauren Piepho, Hammel Green and Abrahamson
Jennifer Hardy, and Melanie Silver, Payette
