CCHRC members and sponsors provide vital, sustaining support for our mission to promote and advance healthy, durable, and sustainable shelter for cold climates. Donations help fuel many projects, including sustainable prototype houses in rural Alaska, renewable energy tests, and the production of educational videos, publications and multimedia. Your contribution to CCHRC makes change happen by providing valuable support to our research efforts.
CCHRC works with industry to test residential building techniques and products in the extreme climates of Alaska. Specific research focus areas include thermal performance and moisture control in the building envelope, and the thermal interactions between foundations and frozen ground. Our building science research capabilities include both physical testing under laboratory and field conditions, and simulation methods for evaluating building products and assemblies.
