During the Korea Architecture Fair and Festival 2011 (KAFF) held at COEX from October  27~30, 2011, CWK has organized and conducted the seminar on wood frame construction and design in cooperation with FPAC, CMHC and many Korean industry associations including Korea Institute of Registered Architects (KIRA), Korea Society of Residential Housing (KSRA) and Korea Wood Construction Association (KWCA) on October 29, 2011. The seminar was ended up with a great success with over 330 participants who are mostly architects and designers. Isabelle Des Chênes, VP of FPAC delivered a presentation on “Using Wood in Green Building Design’; Ken Klassen, international training team of CMHC on ‘Net Zero Energy in Wood Frame Housing’; Rudy Friesen, Friesen Tolkar Architects on ‘Design of Multi-unit Wood Frame Seniors Housing’; and Jae Seung SONG, Chair of Wood University Centre on ‘Wood Frame Construction Standard Detail’ respectively.  The presentations by the guest experts received high level of interest and the seminar kit containing various technical information that CWK provided was also very popular to the participants. CWK will build up the cooperative relationships as well as continuing communicating with the influential groups identified through the seminar.
