Author(s): Matthew Bronski

On 14 January, WoodWorks Wood Products Council presented a webinar titled “Durable Design:  Lessons from Historic Wood Structures,” featuring SGH's Matthew B. Bronski. The webinar had almost 1,000 attendees, which is one of the largest turnouts WoodWork has ever had.  During the live viewing, Matthew shared a series of lessons and principles that can be used to design wood structures and enclosures more durably.  These lessons are based on his independent research project that examined the durability of historic wood buildings in Rome in the context of their construction details.
