O7. Handbook “Design, Construction and Management of Wooden Public Buildings”

The handbook presents significant theoretical and practical solutions in design, construction and management of sustainable wooden public buildings, based on experiences in five countries – Lithuania, Denmark, UK, Finland and Latvia, as well as in the international context. Understanding of sustainable development and the importance of wooden construction discussed, properties of wood as a construction material analysed, design solutions, including moisture, fire safety and acoustical considerations provided, wooden construction project and process management addressed, use and maintenance, including planning and inspections described, most common reasons of failures identified. The handbook is primary intended for undergraduate students who study design and construction of sustainable buildings. The presented materials are relevant not only in the academic context, but may be significant to all stakeholders in construction and real estate markets who are committed to sustainable construction in wood.
