Technology and Trends in Sustainable Tropical Hardwoods

Approximately 1 hour 30 minutes

There is no substitute for the natural beauty of newly installed tropical hardwood, but keeping it looking great and achieving the desired performance over time require careful attention to detail. Choosing the best hardwood species and specifying the appropriate fastening and finishing systems will ensure an aesthetically pleasing, low-maintenance, and successful design in terms of installation, performance, and appearance. This course discusses wood species specification, installation techniques, and finishing methods for tropical hardwoods in conventional and sustainable buildings. As well, international programs that are used to successfully determine sustainability are examined.

Presented by Naomi Comstock, Steve Getsiv, Keaton Smith, Katja Wahl on behalf of Nova USA Wood Products LLC.
