Werner Hofstatter, the products and markets advisor for the Canadian Wood Council's Wood Works! BC Program, spoke to the Journal of Commerce at the Wood Solutions Fair, recently held at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Hofstatter detailed some of the efforts being made by the wood industry to bring innovative materials and techniques to market, including the Wood Innovation and Design Centre under construction in Prince George, B.C.

He also pointed to wood as an environmentally-friendly building material which allows for carbon sequestration and a smaller carbon footprint.

Hofstatter also addressed the need for the industry to recognize that all materials, wood included, have a place in design and construction of structures, and that no building is only made of one material.
