SLB Releases 2019 Q3 Quarterly Update
The SLB’s recently published 2019 Q3 Quarterly Report recaps its progress in increasing demand and defending and growing markets for softwood lumber products. The SLB’s programs met and exceeded targets across the board and, in doing so, delivered benefits to the entire softwood lumber industry. Third-party analysis shows that the SLB’s programs created 296 million board feet of incremental softwood lumber demand in the quarter, en route to an annual goal of 1.2 billion board feet of generated demand.

Denver Adopts Tall Mass Timber Building Code
The City of Denver’s newly adopted 2019 building code includes tall mass timber provisions approved in the 2021 International Building Code (IBC). The American Wood Council (AWC) provided ongoing technical assistance to the city and the Structural Engineers Association of Colorado during the city’s review and deliberation process. There will now be a four-month period wherein new projects can use either the 2016 Denver Building Code or the newly adopted 2019 version. After four months, all building and fire code permits will be processed using the 2019 Denver Building Code.
