The CLT House, which was certified as the second official Super-E® House in Korea, received the grand prize in the Completed Work Category of the 2017 Korea Wood Design Awards.

The second Super-E® House was the first in Korea to apply CLT and since winning the grand prize at the Korea Wood Design Awards, more attention has been focused on the Super-E® House and CLT through articles and issues covered by a number of media outlets.

Mr. Gap-bong Kim, CEO of Stuga Wood Construction, who constructed Korea’s first CLT house participated in the first Advanced Technology Construction Training in Canada conducted in 2005 hosted by Canada Wood and became the leader of KWCA’s Super-E® Task Force Team.

KWCA made a MOU with Super-E® Office last year to act as an official service provider of Super-E® certification program in Korea and is currently working on combining their 5-Star QA Inspection program with Super-E® Certification program with support from Canada Wood Korea.
