During the Busan Kyunghyang Housing Fair 2013, CWK in collaboration with Korea Institute of Registered Architects in Busan City (KIRA Busan) and Korea Institute of Architects in Busan City (KIA Busan) held a day long WFC Standard Design Detail Workshop at BEXCO in Busan for registered architects and members of KIRA Busan and KIA Busan by using Wood Frame Construction Standard Design Drawings-2013 booklet as a teaching tool.

A total of 51 registered architects of KIRA Busan and KIA Busan attended the workshop and received various lectures on WFC building codes and standard design details based on the 2013 version of WFC SDD booklet which was enhanced with seismic design, wood infill wall and Super E energy efficient details.

Canada Wood Korea has developed the WFC SDD booklet and provided a series of design detail workshops since 2010 to assist architects to simplify the design process for their WFC projects. This will enable the expansion of the Korean wood frame construction market, especially for the single family and town house sector.

The next workshop is scheduled to be held on October 23 ~ 24 in Seoul with an enhanced curriculum for the member architects of KIRA Seoul and KIA Seoul.
