About the Tour

The Think Wood Mobile Tour is a museum-quality display that showcases the environmental and economic benefits of softwood lumber and engineered wood products in both residential and commercial construction. The traveling exhibit features interactive elements, product and connection examples, and models, telling the wood story from forest to market.

The tour is provided in partnership by the Softwood Lumber Board, U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, and the APA – Engineered Wood Association, and is endorsed by the National Building Museum.
The Think Wood Mobile Tour will resume travel across the United States in August 2021, in accordance with pandemic re-opening guidelines.

Take the 360 virtual tour!

Follow the green guided paths at the start of the tour, or explore at your own pace, following the white arrows on the wood floor. Take each path and use your cursor to explore the surroundings and more information on each element.

For the best experience, we recommend using Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari or the new Microsoft Edge. Enjoy exploring!

Guidelines for Event and Venue Scheduling

  • 20 x 45′ minimum space requirement. Level space with easy access should be provided so that the Think Wood Mobile Tour unit (TWMT) can be parked within 50 feet of access to electricity. (110 V)
  • The TWMT will not pay for booth space rental nor electricity. Space must be complimentary or furnished by a sponsor secured by the host organization or venue.
  • All scheduled events remain tentative pending available staff and funding, which may not be confirmed until two weeks prior to the event.
  • The Softwood Lumber Board and the TWMT will determine the tour schedule based on the type and size of venue, geographic location, proximity to other scheduled events, and other considerations. Events and venues that attract architects, developers, engineers, contractors, the lumber industry, and forestry events will be given priority.

Think Wood Mobile Tour Health and Safety Protocols

Mobile Tour Safety Protocols

Now more than ever, Think Wood and its partners are committed to creating a tour experience where participants can feel safe about interacting with others in person. In addition to observing mandates and guidelines set forth by event facilities, local authorities and government health agencies, several additional steps for cleaning and disinfection will be in place. If health officials release new guidelines regarding prevention and distancing practices, we will update our policies to reflect such recommendations.

Prevention and Protection

  • All drivers and tour managers will have shown proof of vaccination prior to being hired to work on the tour.
  • On-site tour managers will have access to qualified first aid responders who can respond to immediate medical needs.

Cleaning and Hygiene

  • Tour managers will observe enhanced sanitization protocols, especially for high-touch areas such as handles and interactive displays. Displays will be wiped down every two hours – or more frequently, if attendance is high.
  • Participants will be encouraged to disinfect their hands at either of the display’s two sanitizer stations.
  • When the display is indoors, participants will be encouraged to wear face masks upon entry or required to do so, if such mandates are in effect. Disposable masks will be provided to participants who do not have them.
  • Refusal to comply with these guidelines and procedures may result in no entry to event and/or removal from the event.

Physical Distancing

  • Whenever possible, contactless- and self-registration methods such as barcode scanning and QR-codes will be used at the display.
  • To increase physical distancing, participants will be directed to move through the display in one direction.
  • Whenever feasible, the display will be located outdoors or in an area with a high rate of air circulation.
  • Capacity may be restricted based on ability to distance guests.

Personal Wellness Check

  • Do not attend the event if you have been exposed to somebody who has recently tested positive for COVID-19 or if you have recently tested positive for COVID-19
  • Do not attend the event if you are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19 such as:
    • Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting.

While THINK WOOD and the THINK WOOD venue provide certain COVID-19 safety requirements, you should follow the CDC’s specific community mitigation guidelines including personal protective measures, social distancing and environmental surface cleaning. You should consult your medical professional before attending any event. Any reliance you place on THINK WOOD and venue materials is strictly at your own risk and may not fully protect you from any illness or liability that may occur.  You should follow all federal, state and local regulations including, but not limited to, those provided by the CDC and OSHA.
