CANADIAN WOOD COUNCIL

The Canadian Wood Council (CWC) represents the Canadian wood products industry through a national federation of associations. The Mission of the CWC is to expand market access and increase demand for Canadian wood products through excellence in codes, standards, regulations and education. The CWC provides technical and knowledge transfer services relating to building codes, standards and regulations. The CWC is active in a technical capacity in all areas of the Regulatory System: building codes, design standards, product standards, test standards.

MARKET DEVELOPMENT
A core role of the CWC is to act as the conduit for the transfer of technical knowledge for the people (builders, architects, engineers) who specify wood in construction. CWC does this by:

- Developing and disseminating essential technical tools and field support needed to design with wood. This includes technical manuals, web tools, design software and a HelpDesk option ([email protected]).
- Operating a pan-Canadian construction sector education program, with market partners, under the name of Wood WORKS!, Cecobois in Quebec. The Wood WORKS! program plays a vital role in broadening wood’s use in construction by working closely with the building community and governments for wood’s broader use.

All New PINK NEXT GEN™ FIBERGLAS® Insulation 

The advanced fibre technology of PINK NEXT GEN™ FIBERGLAS® creates a tightly woven network of soft, fine fibres to form a super-resilient blanket of insulating micro-pockets. Leveraging several  new technology innovations, the new product is safe for installers and residents and faster to install than competitive insulation products and spray foam insulation. Because no hazardous chemicals are required to be mixed on the install site, there is less potential for human error, increasing peace of mind for installers and residents. 

“Contractors today have high performance expectations and extremely tight timelines,” said Joe Wagner, Insulation marketing director. “This product evolution is a significant step-change in meeting the needs of contractors, as well as installers, builders and homeowners.” The product is designed to meet building codes and help professionals manage through tight labor timelines and budgets by reducing install time.

PINK NEXT GEN™ FIBERGLAS® insulation focuses on solving problems in four meaningful areas:

Safety

  • Offers 99%-safer fire performance and no chemical fire retardants added to fibreglass1
  • Made with safe, proven ingredients 
  • No formaldehyde added
  • No hazardous chemicals mixed on-site

Precision

  • Made with advanced fiber technology for up to 23% faster installation compared to our existing products
  • Enables insulation of up to 161 more homes per year2
  • Exceptional product recovery and improved stiffness perfectly fills standard cavities and stays put
  • Fewer clumps and chunks for fast, clean cutting and splitting
  • Helps projects pass inspection with visibly superior texture and smooth uniform surface 
    that inspectors desire 

Comfort

  • Texture is soft as cotton
  • Less dust for more comfortable installation and less cleanup
  • Shed-resistant insulation stays on the batt, not on installers
  • Improved indoor comfort and sound reduction for homeowners

Sustainability

  • Made with 100% wind-powered electricity 
  • New industry standard for recycled content
  • Saves 12 times the energy required to make it in the first year of use
  • Underwriter Laboratories (UL) GREENGUARD certified for low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

“PINK NEXT GEN™ insulation sets a new standard for insulation as the right choice for contractors, builders and homeowners," Wagner added. "This is just the beginning of a series of ongoing innovations in 2021 and beyond that will enable Owens Corning to continue exceeding customers' high expectations."

PINK NEXT GEN™ FIBERGLAS®insulation is available in the U.S. and Canada. Learn HERE

RBC ROYAL BANK

Developing new home construction projects takes a significant investment, but partnering with the right financial experts can help you avoid closing-day headaches that can occur with unprepared buyers. Important to your success are rate guarantees that will protect your sale and the ability to offer the convenience of one-stop mortgage shopping to your purchasers. That’s where the Preferred Builder Program from RBC Royal Bank® comes in. It can be tailored to suit your needs, while providing homebuyers with fast, firm approvals and competitive extended-rate commitments from the time of approval. The rate guarantee gives buyers solid financing that will help you close the deal. By working with one of RBC’s builder development managers, you can establish a package that fits your unique project needs. Builders are also teamed with dedicated mortgage specialists, who work on site so they are available to handle the purchasers’ mortgage needs. The mortgage specialists ensure that buyers have all of the documentation and paperwork ready on time to close the sale, and they can refer your clients, if they so desire, to a local branch representative to take care of all their banking needs. Mortgage financing may also be available for upgrades — the things your clients need to make their house a home.
