A bit more about the company...

WoodWorks is an initiative of the Wood Products Council, a cooperative venture of major North American wood associations, as well as research organizations, government agencies and other funding partners.

WoodWorks was established to provide free technical support as well as education and resources related to the design of non-residential and multi-family wood buildings. WoodWorks field teams have expertise in a wide range of building types—from schools and mid-rise/multi-family, to commercial, corporate, franchise, retail, public, institutional and more. Our objective is to make it easier to design, engineer and construct wood buildings at less cost.
