Permanent Wood Foundations 2016
Permanent Wood Foundations (PWF) brings together all of the standards and building practices used to build these types of foundations. The 2016 edition has been updated to conform to the requirements of CSA S406-16, CSA O86-14 and NBC 2015. In addition, updated stud selection tables for PWF which support up to 3-storeys above the foundation, updated selection tables for PWF walls which support even backfill heights (e.g. walk-out basements), updated building science guidance and details, and additional requirements for PWF in high wind and seismic locations are also included.
