The Wood Fiber Difference: COA Timelapse

It can take an average of 8 years after install for typical insulating materials to offset their carbon footprint with operational energy savings! That’s not the case with wood fiber insulation which arrives at the jobsite carbon negative and sequesters carbon in the built environment.

This time lapse video highlights construction of College of the Atlantic’s Center for Human Ecology, which features continuous exterior wood fiber insulation boards made by a German manufacturer.

The building is a joint collaboration between Susan T. Rodriguez Architecture and Maine-based architecture, research and design firm OPAL. Using wood fiber insulation in the design affirms the college‚Äôs commitment to reducing CO2e emissions, while achieving low operational energy for the life of the building.
