On February 8, the 20th KWCA-WUC(Korea Wood Construction Association – Wood University Centre) Software Design Course sponsored by Canada Wood Korea was concluded. The course aims to present basic principles of strength of materials and structural analysis for wood construction and introduce the codes that govern structural design. A total of 15 students joined this year’s course, and 3 of them continued to complete the 10-day Advanced Technology Construction Training in Canada in late February.

Buildings in general are responsible for 40 percent of all emissions and poses huge effects on the climate change, thus architects and developers are turning to timber building for the solution to reduce the construction industry’s massive carbon footprint. A quarter of the training course students were exposed to wood construction for the first time.
