Abstract or Summary
  • Architects and engineers are two key types of design professionals who influence the use of wood products in construction. Eighty to ninety percent by volume of all residential structures in the U.S. are wood (Gupta, 2005). In 2010, the non-residential market was made up by 10% wood, 60% steel and 30% concrete (Non-Residential, 2010). Wood use in non-residential structures has been as low as 4% by floor area basis (Robichaud et al. 2009). While wood currently only makes up 10% or 1.5 billion board feet, estimates show that the non-residential wood market could be a potential 15 billion board feet. This was found by looking at where wood was used and could have been used instead of other construction materials. Cost, codes and lack of understanding of wood design are factors that have kept wood out of non-residential construction. It is possible, that with more education and a better understanding of wood, design professionals would utilize it more in non-residential structures. The possibility of wood use increasing in the non-residential sector makes understanding how architects and engineers perceive their knowledge is important. When looking at construction as a whole, wood is used more than any other material in construction by weight or by volume, making it important that designers in the construction industry have a strong understanding and knowledge of this essential construction material (Gupta, 2005). Understanding what the educational needs are for professionals designing structures provides insight into what information should be provided them. In this study, we will be focusing on the educational needs for architects and engineers.

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Rejected because pages 83 - end need page numbers. Also if you could add to the three additional List of Figures so it reads - LIST OF FIGURES (Continued). Everything else looks good. Once revised, log back into ScholarsArchive and go to the upload page. Replace the attached file with the revised file and resubmit. Thanks, Julie on 2015-03-30T20:53:32Z (GMT)
