“Durability by design” is the most important aspect of durable solutions.  It starts with using dry wood, storing it appropriately to ensure it stays dry, and then designing the building to protect the wood or, if the wood will be exposed, designing to not accumulate moisture.  It includes ensuring the building envelope is appropriately designed to shed bulk water, mitigating water and vapour from getting into the envelope, and draining water that does leak into the envelope.
