Forestry Innovation Consulting India Pvt. Ltd., popularly known as Canadian Wood recently conducted a webinar on ‘Wood in Structural use (II) – Building Techniques’ to create awareness about Canadian wood species, specific applications, and appropriate methods of use in India. This was a 2nd in the series of webinars by Canadian Wood to inform and showcase possibilities with constructing with wood.
There is a growing interest amongst Architects, Real Estate Developers and Hospitality Industry, to think of projects with wood as construction material and hence the session addressed the different requirements. Additionally, private villas, country homes and farmhouses in wood are fast catching the fancy of the HNIs in India. The emphasis of the session was on the detailing involved in different styles and techniques of building with wood. Building methods such as Tongue & Groove (T&G), Wood Frame Construction (WFC), Posts-and-Beams and Hybrid style which is using wood in tandem with local stone/bricks were demonstrated to the audience. These were showcased along with credible examples of several successful projects that Canadian Wood has partnered in by providing material or technical assistance or both, across India.
