In this unit, you will explain the impact of thermal capacity and performance of timber buildings on the health and wellbeing of occupants within regular timber structures/buildings. You will also discuss the impact of internal and external moisture challenges on the health and wellbeing of occupants and the durability of the structure. As part of this unit, you will analyse the impact of solar absorption on solar gain and ventilation in a timber structure.
