Japan Chooses Canadian Wood

November 26, 2014

FPInnovations' high performance Midply Wall System is featured in the winning design for the construction of a five-storey, 9,023m2 elderly care facility in Tokyo's Adachi Ward. Upon completion the building will be the largest wooden building ever built in Japan. The Midply Wall System, an innovative redesign of standard shear walls used in construction, was selected because of its outstanding resilience to severe earthquakes and extreme winds.
