Nominations Now Open for 2019 Wood Design Awards

“Wood buildings have been impressing people for centuries and they keep getting better,” said Jennifer Cover, PE, WoodWorks’ President and CEO. “If I had to choose one word to describe the current state of wood building design, it would be ‘innovative.’ Products like cross-laminated timber and nail-laminated timber are expanding the opportunities for wood—and there are a lot of pioneering designers out there leveraging this newfound creative potential.

It’s exciting to see examples of innovative systems and technologies, but this year’s projects are a reminder of the many reasons building designers gravitate to wood.”
