Project conversion efforts lead to increased wood sales

The US WoodWorks program, which is focused on converting buildings that would have used a construction material other than wood, reported 227 project conversions leading to $163 million in incremental wood sales. This equates to 170 million board feet of lumber, 49 million board feet of engineered wood products, and 98 million square feet of panel products.

Many builders are unaware that wood is a viable building material for their construction projects. WoodWorks helps developers by participating in the initial design phase of a project and during material selection. WoodWorks also educates builders about code allowances and offers ongoing technical support to ensure projects meet and exceed expectations when built with wood.
