Webinar: Thermal Performance for Timber-framed Residential Construction: WoodSolutions Guide 24
Wednesday 5th August 11am—12 noon (AEST)
Presented by Dr Mark Dewsbury School of Architecture and Design, University of Tasmania
WoodSolutions is releasing three guides in relation to thermal performance and thermal mass in timber-framed buildings - Guides 22, 23 &24.
Dr Mark Dewsbury, of the School of Architecture and Design UTAS, will be presenting on Thermal Performance for Timber-framed Residential Construction (Guide 24).
In the evolving world of increased building regulation and an increasing market expectation for low energy homes there is a need to clearly and simply show how the renewable Australian timber resource can be used to provide thermally comfortable housing, whether they be located in the hot and humid climate of Broome or the cool temperate climate of Hobart.
This guide, which is aimed at designers, builders and home owners reinforces basic principles and introduces new strategies.
