High-Performance Modified Wood: Beauty Built to Last

10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

Wood is a top material choice in construction due to its beauty and longevity. But high demand has put a strain on this natural resource, especially for the timber with greatest durability like tropical hardwoods. Today, new technology allows for the use of responsibly-sourced fast-growing timber in wood modification that yields products with the same or greater durability as those overexploited hardwoods. This course provides an overview of the wood-modification process that results in a product that’s non-toxic, highly durable, Class-A Fire Rated, environment friendly, and ideal for use in indoor and outdoor applications. This course also explains how this Modified Wood contributes to LEED v4 certification.
