Safe Effective Affordable Retrofits Testing a new batch of wall systems that can provide affordable retrofit options.
Permafrost Foundations CCHRC worked with the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory to pair information on permafrost soils with optimal foundation designs.
Frost-Protected Shallow Foundation Study Frost-protected shallow foundations rely on placing enough insulation outside of a shallow foundation to protect it from heaving due to seasonal freezing. Temperature sensors were installed at two houses with these foundations to measure the thermal regime of the soil.
Permafrost Technology Foundation Library The Permafrost Technology Foundation produced design manuals and videos created to explain what permafrost is and where it occurs, how to conduct a thorough permafrost site investigation, and techniques for building new structures and stabilizing existing structures on permafrost.
