Renovation project of urban households using wood from green sources, exploited sustainably and having the corresponding certificate from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
The investment is financed purchase of certified wood for the rehabilitation of a couple of flats located in the center of Barcelona city. The materials used, as is standard in CANO projects are of high quality, carefully selected to respect the environment and sustainability throughout the process, both from procurement of materials to the recycling of the old materials replaced.
This action will also allow a significant improvement in the energy efficiency of the renovated homes, reducing the energy losses that existed from the previous isolation.
Rehabilitation of houses using ecological wood obtained from sustainable forest exploitation.
Wood is a natural, healthy, renewable and recoverable at the end of their life cycle material. This makes it a highly recommended construction material.
It has very good technical and biological characteristics; It is especially interesting because of its ability to regulate the hygrothermal characteristics of the interior of the buildings to present a "living" parallel structure formed by hollow microchannels that are able to absorb and evaporate water from the atmosphere.
It is also a traditional high quality material that provides such important qualities as the warmth of surfaces (very stable against changes in temperature). It is also a "healthy" material that does not cause damage to human health or the environment (in the absence of treatment or not agglomerated with other products) and is necessary for this important quality is maintained using natural and healthful substances in all cases (tails to form boards, protective and wood finishes).
The thermal conductivity is very low, 400 times less than steel and 12 times less than concrete, plus thermal expansion is very low (a great advantage over aluminum and PVC joinery). The fire performance of wood has very interesting features: it does not emit toxic gases during combustion and the stability of the structure is maintained for longer periods than other materials such as steel (material there to increase benefits if necessary, as intumescent) coatings.
The Forest Stewardship Council, better known by its acronym FSC is a non-governmental organization for accreditation and certification based in Bonn, Germany.
The official mission of the Council is "to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world's forests." Individuals or organizations interested in sustainable consumption of wood, paper and other forest derivatives may seek to obtain a FSC certification of their products. The FSC certification is also used to demonstrate sustainable forest management.
Through consultative processes, FSC develops standards and policies for sustainable forest management, in addition to accredit certification bodies to evaluate candidates for forest certification.
