Description

Learning objective: using scientifically-based life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology, this session demonstrates why wood products are better for the environment than other materials in terms of indicators such as embodied energy, air and water pollution and global warming potential. This presentation also examines why wood from sustainably managed forests is a good choice when it comes to one of society’s most pressing issues—climate change.

Comments

Scott Lockyear is currently the Senior Director for WoodWorks and is responsible for providing continuing education to practitioners in addition to providing assistance on the design of commercial wood frame buildings. Prior to joining WoodWorks Scott managed technical support services in the Southeastern US for Trus Joist/Weyerhaueser. In this role he was responsible for production of shop drawings, providing education on engineered wood products design, and providing engineering support.

He also has been a staff engineer with the American Wood Council and was heavily involved in the development of wood design standards such as the Wood Frame Construction Manual and the National Design Specification for Wood. Scott is currently an associate member on ASCE 7 wind and snow committees and has been involved with ASTM standards related to building construction and fasteners.

Scott has a Master of Science from Washington State University in Civil Engineering. While at Washington State University his masters research involved establishing design properties for wood plastic composites for use in marine and naval applications.
