AWC sings praises of mass timber
American Wood Council President and CEO Robert Glowinski issued a statement following Governor Jay Inslee signing SB 5450, which directs the state of Washington to enact the tall wood building code changes when adopted by the International Code Council. The move will help jump start mass timber construction in the state.
“Mass timber is a new category of wood product that will revolutionize how America builds. Beyond its aesthetic qualities, wood is among the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly of all building materials. Wood products store carbon, keeping it out of the atmosphere indefinitely, thereby reducing a building’s environmental footprint.
“The entire construction industry is changing. AWC applauds Washington state for helping pioneer better places for us to live and work.”
