Atlantic WoodWORKS! Full Day Technical Session Presentations




Fostering a Wood Culture in the Atlantic region

Atlantic WoodWORKS! is a regional program of the Maritime Lumber Bureau, as part of the national industry-led initiative of the Canadian Wood Council, with a goal to support innovation and provide leadership on the use of wood and wood products. We encourage decision makers and design/build professionals to pursue sustainable, life-cycle smart wood construction and to support build with wood policies.

Most importantly, Atlantic WoodWORKS! is a partner, equipped to provide free technical support to assist stakeholders and designers with whatever challenges arise throughout the process of bringing wood buildings from concept to construction.

Through workshops, seminars and case studies, WoodWORKS! provides education, training and technical expertise to building and design professionals involved with commercial, institutional and industrial construction projects.

Atlantic WoodWORKS! provides practical, efficient, versatile and cost-effective building and design solutions through the use of wood -- the most sustainable, natural and renewable building material on earth.

Long-term Care Facilities

Facility operators and residents are looking for accommodations and services that are accessible, safe, cheery, and bright, and yet economical to construct and maintain. Wood construction offers many advantages—for example, wood-frame construction is economical, and wood finishes and exposed wood members offer architectural appeal and warmth.

Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) Handbook

Cross-laminated timber (CLT), an innovative engineered wood product developed in Europe, has been gaining increasing popularity in residential and non-residential applications in several countries. Numerous impressive buildings built around the world using CLT have become a good testimony of the many advantages that this product can offer to the construction sector. While this product is well-established in Europe, work on the implementation of CLT products and systems has just begun in Canada and the United States.

WoodFIRST Resolutions passed in Atlantic municipalities

Municipalities are now formally recognizing that wood is sustainable, and renewable, and that wood structures minimize or eliminate the carbon footprint of a building. They are also recognizing the fact that wood meets building code requirements as permitted in the Canadian Building Code. We invite your community to demonstrate leadership in the Atlantic region by passing WoodFIRST resolutions; recognizing the historic, present and future value of wood, and thereby contributing to our wood culture.
