5-7 March 2013, Excel, London – stand S832-S833
Canada Wood UK will be working with Ontario Wood Products Export Association (OWPEA) and Quebec Wood Export Bureau (QWEB) as part of the Canadian Pavilion on stand S832-S833 at this year’s Ecobuild.
Canada Wood UK provides industry, trade, specifiers, designers and the public with support through information resources and marketing initiatives, advising on technical issues, sources of supply, product availability, grading, environmental matters and related topics, and offers a series of RIBA accredited CPD presentations that can be tailored to individual needs.
At Ecobuild, the world’s largest event for sustainable design, Canada Wood UK will assist in representing its partner associations, whose member company products draw on the wealth of Canada’s vast, legally harvested* and sustainable forest resource. They offer softwood and hardwood sawntimber, engineered wood products, wood flooring, factory-built timber frame and log homes, treated wood and much more, using hardwood species that include ash, beech, birch, cherry, maple, oak, poplar, and walnut, and softwoods such as eastern white cedar, fir, pine and spruce.
Canada Wood UK has also developed a concise brief, on the new European Timber Regulation (EUTR)*, for ‘operators’ – importers first placing timber or wood products onto the EU market. This brief can be obtained online www.canadawooduk.org ; further information on the Canadian Pavilion.
