Abstract

This paper introduces the ForestValue research project CLICKdesign –delivering fingertip knowledge to enable service life performance specification of wood. Theconsortium is working on aprimary innovation to move from the complex, fragmented and general to the easy-to-use, consolidated and specific by provision of adigital tool for specifiers.Othermaterials tackle this and provide designers and architects with software. Thespecification of performance of wood products is complex and fraught with inconsistency and requires use of multiple platforms for data, experience, standards and national recommendations. CLICKdesign will provide a tool that has within it the decades of research, the complexity of the standards specification systems and the variation of approach due to tradition, materials and culture across Europe and beyond. A simple tool for nonexpert public users will be available as well as a tool accessible to professional users that will be refined with industry to ensure relevancy and accelerate uptake and use.
