Congratulations to the 2016 Wood Design Award winners! WoodWorks announced the national and regional design winners. Now it its 8th year, the Wood Design Award is meant to “celebrate projects and design teams that showcase the innovative use of wood as both a structural and finish material,” according to Jennifer Cover, PE, executive director of WoodWorks/Wood Products Council. She went on to say “Ranging from mass timber to traditional wood-frame, this year’s winning projects exemplify wood’s many attributes, from structural performance and design versatility, to sustainability and cost effectiveness.”
