Wood Preservation Canada, the Canadian Wood Council and FPInnovations are hosting a webinar regarding wood preservation and the importance of proper specification.
By Andrew Joseph, Farms.com
A new Specifier’s Guide for farm builders is available that examines the importance of proper specification and outlines the vast differences between residential and commercial preserved wood products—Pressure Treated Structural Barn Posts—A Specifier’s Guide, from Wood Preservation Canada (WPC).
Along with the Specifier’s Guide as part of its education plan, WPC, the Canadian Wood Council and FPInnovations will host a webinar series the month of February. The first entitled Wood Preservation: The Importance of Proper Specification will take place on February 2, 2022.
A second webinar on February 9, 2022, will focus on the Design & Construction of Permanent Wood Foundations. The last webinar will take place on February 16.
The WPC and its members have noted that there appears to be a lack of knowledge about the different preserved wood products, their specification and the importance of proper installation and maintenance.
As such, the WPC said it has recently shifted its efforts towards resources like the Specifier’s Guide, and furthering education. The webinar is its first effort in this area.
To further education on this important subject, WPC is currently working on a specification publication with the Canadian Wood Council.
