SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT

Wood performs better than concrete and steel when it comes to air and water pollution. The advantages of wood are recognized by Green building rating systems including certified wood, recycled/reused materials, local sourcing of materials, waste minimization, indoor air quality, and life cycle impacts. We choose our suppliers carefully to offer the best quality and a responsible build. Third-party lumber suppliers are given priority based on the level of responsibility of their wood procurement policies.

BUILD GREEN

When it comes to sustainability, the choice of materials matters. Wood is the only natural, renewable, and sustainable material for building and has a lighter carbon footprint than steel or concrete. On average, about 60% of GHG emissions can be reduced by using wood rather than concrete or steel.

NET-ZERO ELIGIBLE INSULATION

Thermal envelope refers to the enclosure of the home that shields the inside living space from the outside elements. A tight thermal envelope keeps your home comfortable throughout the year and saves you money by reducing the amount of energy required to heat and cool your home. Timber Block’s patented R-30 or optional R-36 insulating system meets or exceeds North American building code requirements making it a central piece of any High-Performance home.

Homes built conventionally, with higher insulation levels are likely to still have holes or gaps in the thermal envelope. These gaps, or thermal bridges, most often occur when insulation becomes compressed or improperly installed. Timber Block’s proprietary process ensures the insulation is applied in a factory-controlled environment and consistently maintained throughout the entire height of the wall structure thus avoiding potential voids and loss of energy efficiency.

GREEN GOLD
CERTIFIED INSULATION

WHAT IS GREENGUARD GOLD CERTIFICATION?
The products that we use to build and furnish our indoor environments can have a significant impact on indoor air pollution levels. Products that have achieved GREENGUARD Certification are scientifically proven to meet some of the world’s most rigorous, third-party chemical emissions standards, helping to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure, while aiding in the creation of healthier indoor environments.

BENEFITS
By choosing products with GREENGUARD Certification, you are creating a healthier indoor environment for your home, office, or institution and reducing chemical exposure. GREENGUARD Certification Standards are among the most rigorous in the world, so you can be confident that these certified products live up to their claims.

A SMALLER
CARBON FOOTPRINT

Wood stores carbon. Out of all the major building materials, it requires less energy from harvest to transport, manufacturing, installation, maintenance, and disposal or recycling. Harvesting and replanting increase the carbon sink potential as the rate of sequestration is greater during young, vigorous growth. Active forest management - or forest thinning - mitigates wildfires, cuts carbon emissions, replenishes area waterways, expands wildlife habitat, and creates jobs in rural areas.

Maximizing wood used in both residential and commercial construction could remove an estimated 21 million tons of C02 from the atmosphere annually – equal to taking 4.4 million cars off the road. On all our plans, you will find an icon that indicates the equivalent of cars taken off the roads for one year as a measure of CO2 that is stored forever in our wood-constructed homes.
