Carbon Sequestration

Carbon Sequestration

How much carbon have your trees stored? The Alabama Forestry Commission is developing guidelines to help forest landowners and Foresters measure carbon dioxide that is produced and stored in Alabama’s forests.
Code Adoption Map

Code Adoption Map

The International Code Council (ICC) is the leading developer of model building codes that are adopted for use in the United States. In some fashion every state has adopted one or more of the codes promulgated by ICC. The exact number of codes, the method of enactment, and their application to buildings varies considerably across the 50 states. From a number of sources, AWC has compiled a map illustrating which versions of the International Codes are applicable in each state. This map shows states that have adopted the IBC at a statewide, local, or limited level, and specifies the edition of the code currently being enforced in the state. Because the updating process is dynamic, the information may change and the map may not reflect the most current information.
Heights and Areas Calculator

Heights and Areas Calculator

Provides users with a web-based approach to calculating maximum heights and areas for buildings of various occupancies and fire protection based on 2006 IBC provisions.
WoodWorks Carbon Calculator

WoodWorks Carbon Calculator

Wood products continue to store carbon absorbed by the trees during their growth cycle, keeping it out of the atmosphere indefinitely. Using wood in place of fossil fuel-intensive materials also "avoids" greenhouse gases that would have been emitted during manufacturing. Now, it is possible to quantify these benefits for wood buildings.
