China formulate the nation`s timber structure construction development plan
A delegation from China`s Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) visited Tacoma, Washington-based APA-The Engineered Wood Association and toured wood-framed building projects in Seattle on September 11. The visit comes as China begins to formulate the nation`s timber structure construction development plan as part of the 13th Five-Year Plan for Economic and Social Development. Director General Yu Binyang and other MOHURD representatives discussed opportunities and challenges around building with wood in China. Considerations included the importance of sustainability, green building, codes and standards, and further development of trade relations with the U.S. The delegation toured APA`s 42,000-square-foot research center and observed a full-scale glued laminated timber (glulam) bending test, wood structural panel shear wall cyclic load test, and a cross-laminated timber (CLT) shear strength test. In addition to providing design recommendations and product support in the U.S. and Canada, APA and its member manufacturers work with the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service to promote the export and use of engineered wood products in international markets. APA - The Engineered Wood Association was founded in 1933, represents approximately 169 plywood, oriented strand board, glulam timber, wood I-joist, Rim Board and structural composite lumber mills throughout North America.
