WoodWorks® Structural Design Software:
WoodWorks® is structural design software produced with technical guidance from the wood industry's codes and standards engineers.This wood design suite includes three programs - Sizer, Shearwalls and Connections. Click here to try the demo. (versions available for both Canada and the U.S.).
One board foot is the nominal quantity of lumber derived from a piece of rough green lumber 1 inch thick and 1 foot wide by 1 foot long. The Board Foot Calc calculates lumber quantities in various units of measure based on dimensions and length entered.
This tool is intended to assist in using wood for the design of tall walls in commercial and industrial structures and to provide a step-by-step guide to the design of these walls. The stud tables in this workbook are provided for lumber studs up to 6.1 m (20 ft.) and proprietary engineered wood studs up to 11.9 m (39 ft.). In addition, a detailed design example of manufacturing facility is provided describing structural, thermal and fire consideration for tall walls. This tool is addressing changes in the new edition of the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC 2005) and the CSA O86 Standard.

US WoodWorks Calculator:
The WoodWorks Carbon Calculator tool estimates the total mass of wood in a building and the associated carbon impacts. Carbon impacts refer to both the amount of carbon stored in the wood building materials and the amount of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) avoided by choosing wood instead of another building material.
A one-stop resource for British Columbia wood products - the Toolkit offers physical samples, case studies, technical details about materials and building ideas.
