Building Sustainably in South Carolina with Wood
About the Program
Building public and educational non-residential buildings with wood was the subject of a series of free workshops hosted by Clemson University’s Wood Utilization and Design Institute and its partners in the SC Wood Innovation Team. The workshops were held May 16, 18 and 20 in Greenville, Columbia and Charleston, respectively, and focused on changes to building codes as well as new wood products that can provide solutions to meet building owners and designers needs. Attendees heard updates from Phil Gerald, State Engineers Office; Gene Kodama, State Forester; and other speakers. The luncheon presentation featured the new SC Welcome Centers designed by Liollio Architecture.
Building owners, designers, and other professionals attended.
