Wood Framing SIPS impact on sustainability
In the move to more environmentally friendly construction materials, wood is very much in the spotlight as it is abundant, natural, renewable and recyclable.
All products in the AGACAD Wood Framing group are facilitating architectural design, structural engineering and automated fabrication with engineered wood products (like CLT and SIPS). Some key sustainability benefits of AGACAD Wood Framing solutions for Revit:
- 3D modelling helps to see more design options and achieve better efficiency. As an example, effectively arranging sheathing panels in the design of a wood frame building can notably reduce the amount of construction materials needed.
- Precise geometry ensures accurate bills of materials, so only what is needed is procured, helping save resources and avoid waste.
- Model accuracy ensures quality documentation and helps identify errors during the design phase, which means fewer mistakes and less rework during construction.
- Much better management of project information means that for any design changes, take-offs update automatically, avoiding rework and orders of unneeded materials.
