New Southern Pine Design Values Implemented in AWC Standards and Design Tools

May 09, 2013

LEESBURG, VA – The American Wood Council (AWC) has revised several of its standards and design tools in response to upcoming changes to Southern Pine design values. The American Lumber Standard Committee (ALSC) Board of Review approved changes to design values for all grades and all sizes of visually graded Southern Pine and Mixed Southern Pine lumber, with a recommended effective date of June 1, 2013 to allow for their orderly implementation. The changes to AWC standards and design tools ensure they remain consistent with the new design values. Visit www.spib.org and www.southernpine.com for more details. 

In advance of the implementation date, AWC has developed addenda and other updates to its standards and design tools as follows:
