  • in all localities, where
    • the wood elements are not protected from exposure to precipitation,
    • the configuration is conducive to moisture accumulation, and
    • the moisture index is greater than 1.00, and
  • in all localities, where structural wood elements are used in retaining walls and cribbing, and where
    • the retaining wall or cribbing supports ground critical to the stability of building foundations, or
    • the retaining wall or cribbing is greater than 1.2 m in height.
This applies to buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9].

INTENT:

To limit the probability that performance, with respect to the protection of structural wood elements from termite infestation or decay, will fall significantly below expectations.
This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:
  • structural failure, or
  • where structural wood elements support or are used in an environmental separator, the displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to the deterioration of building elements.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that performance, with respect to the protection of structural wood elements from termite infestation or decay, will fall significantly below expectations.
Where structural wood elements support or are used in an environmental separator, this is to limit the probability of compromised performance of the building envelope, which could lead to:
  • condensation,
  • precipitation ingress, or
  • compromised thermal performance of components intended to provide resistance to heat transfer.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • an inadequate control of indoor air and surface temperatures, drafts, relative humidity, or water accumulation,
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable upon wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to further compromised integrity of environmental separators.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces,
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons, and
  • contact with moisture.
