Abstract: Development of nearly zero-energy building is very rapid in recent years. The Directive on the energy performance of buildings 2010/31/EU introduced an obligation for all member states to implement almost zero-energy buildings (NZEB). NZE buildings will have to be designed from as early as 2021. Introduction of such stringent thermal protection requirements for buildings has resulted in the need to search for new innovative material and technological solutions that would improve energy efficiency. In the article, Authors present a new, innovative solution for solving structural knots in wooden frame technology. The solution is based on a flexible joint. Authors carried out laboratory tests of thermal parameters of the materials used to build a new technology. The test results were the basis for the analysis of selected construction nodes of the developed technology. The aim of the research and analysis was to show that the applied flexible joint, in comparison to the standard solution based on mechanical connectors, improves thermal insulation of nodes.
