Additional Research Funding from SLB

January 2022

The Council has received matching funding from the Softwood Lumber Board for the Future Potential of Steel-Timber Hybrid Buildings research project. The additional funding will allow CTBUH to hire a research assistant and host a conference to discuss the current state of steel-timber hybrid buildings.

The Softwood Lumber Board (SLB) is an industry-funded initiative established to promote the benefits and uses of softwood lumber products in outdoor, residential, and non-residential construction. Programs and initiatives supported by the SLB will focus on increasing the demand for appearance and softwood lumber products in the United States.
