WoodWorks, an initiative of the Wood Products Council, announced the winners of its 2015 Wood Design Awards at the Bay Area Wood Solutions Fair in Oakland, Calif., on January 27.

“The Wood Design Awards are an opportunity to recognize extraordinary buildings that exemplify, not only wood’s beauty, but the versatility and structural performance attributes that make it such an interesting material to architects and engineers,” said Jennifer Cover, PE, Executive Director of WoodWorks. “Collectively, this year’s award winning projects celebrate the kind of innovative thinking that continues to expand the possibilities for wood use—and bring wood’s cost, sustainability and other advantages to a wider range of projects.”
