Summary
The objective of this project is to identify the risk factors taken into account in the pricing of an insurance contract for a construction site. This project aims to synthesize the quantitative approaches used in practice and presented in academic research for the pricing of home insurance and commercial insurance. Then, we aim to identify the preventive measures that can be taken to reduce the impact of different perils in the insurance of a construction site in wood or other.

Summary
In this project, a conceptual but realistic 20-storey building of hybrid construction incorporating massive timber panels and other structural materials was identified. The project team, consisting of three practicing consultants and 6 graduate student and post-doctoral researchers from NEWBuildS, undertook an analysis and engineering design of the demonstration building. An advisory group that includes FPInnovations scientists, NEWBuildS supervisors of the graduate students and Post Doctoral Fellows, provides technical support to the project team. The performance attributes addressed in the project were structural performance under seismic and wind load, fire resistance and building envelope. . This publication documents the analysis and design of the demonstration building, and identifies technical issues that require further study.

Summary
Sustainable Northwest (SNW) and Hacienda Community Development Group (HCDC), both based in Oregon, have proposed a plan to demonstrate pathways for building affordable housing with regionally sourced mass timber. In response to the region’s housing shortage, the partners’ proposal demonstrates the use of mass timber products while supporting efforts to educate stakeholders on wood product companies and forest restoration. The project outlines a plan to explore financing options, build one or more prototypes, and perform a structural material life cycle analysis.

Summary
Le développement de la construction bois, en particulier de moyenne et grande hauteur, est un enjeu clef de la transition environnementale du domaine de la construction. Il doit se faire de façon la plus qualitative possible. Des opérations de construction bois de moyenne et grande hauteur sont déjà menées par des acteurs précurseurs et doivent être envisagées comme des piliers pour préfigurer les développements à venir. Le Rapport REX sur les constructions bois de plus de 8 m de hauteur permet de capitaliser et de valoriser leurs retours d’expériences afin de sensibiliser et de guider l’ensemble des acteurs de la filière aux enjeux de la construction bois. Cette montée en compétences par le partage des points de vigilance et des bonnes pratiques est le gage d’un développement à la hauteur des objectifs de qualité, de performance et de confort visés.
