Almost 200 designers (196 to be precise) participated in the survey proposed in late February on our pages about a very delicate issue which is quite often neglected: the durability of wooden buildings.
Here Below we collected in aggregate and summarized the results together with some comments:
Approximately one-third of participants did not experience in the design of wooden buildings (zero buildings designed), one-third has designed less than 10 wooden buildings and another third more than 10 wooden buildings
33% have not yet had experience of rotting wooden buildings
94% believe correctly that the detail of ground attack is the result of a team work between companies and designers
95% think that this detail is very important
The same percentage (95%) believe that the detail of ground attack must be approved by the project manager. This is a very interesting figure because often this phase of approval before the arrival on the construction site is neglected.
40% believe that the platform frame structure is the most delicate
Finally, 78% believe that a wooden house can last over 100 years
