-- Canadian Wood, the crown agency of the government of British Columbia (B.C.) Canada announces the launch of the "WoodNiido house" built with Wood Frame Construction technology. The modern structure is spread over a 1,620 square foot single-story prefabricated wood-frame display home built by Chennai-based manufacturing firm, WoodNiido, and is a perfect example of how B.C. wood products can be used within structural applications. The house will be inaugurated by Chief Guest Ar. CR Raju, President, Indian Institute of Architects (IIA), on 4th
March 2022. The Wooden House is built near Chettinad Hospital, Old Mahabalipuram Rd, Kelambakkam, Tamil Nadu and aims to promote sustainable wood housing in India.
Wood has a long history of use in the construction of buildings and infrastructure in many locations around the world. Wood-frame construction is the most common method of residential construction in North America and many other parts of the globe.
Wood Frame Construction is the use of closely spaced members of dimension lumber combined with sheathing to form structural elements of a building. The structural elements provide rigidity, support the interior fining and exterior cladding, and a cavity for the installation of insulation and utilities. Wood-frame construction also provides for the easy installation of doors, windows, electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, and other mechanical systems. Moreover, as compared to concrete buildings, it is light in weight, yet strong, safe, and energy-efficient. It is a quick and easy way to pre-fabricated houses, which attracts property developers for its timeliness and flexibility.
The Indian subcontinent has a varied climate and wood as a construction material is beneficial to new-age architecture and buildings. When the temperature is cold outside, a structure built with wood helps in retaining better heat, inside. On the other hand, it prevents itself from overheating during a warmer climate and keeps humidity at bay. With this, not only is the environment stable, pleasant, and likable, but the reliance on heating and cooling appliances also reduces, thereby limiting one's expenditure.
