  • One example of the Although the developers were primarily interested in the cost and time savings associated with a wood building, climatechange was a critical part of the architect’s proposal to government. By using wood instead of the area’s usual concrete slab construction, he proposed to substantially reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere—through avoided emissions and because the building would continue storing carbon over its lifetime.Although two previous proposals for the site had been turned down, the energy savings alone earned Waugh a strong endorsement from local building authorities and the project was able to proceed.
