Friday 30th May 2014, 1.00pm sharp until 5.00 pm

Free to all design and construction professionals

RSVP early - download registration form here

While timber has always been the first choice for traditional home framing, it is now making a dramatic move into multi-storey residential construction and structural commercial applications.

A diversity of options now exist including: mass-timber products such as cross laminated timber (CLT) – as used in the beautiful new Docklands Library and Community Centre; lightweight timber/plasterboard fire and sound rated systems for multi-residential buildings; and a range of prefabricated and panelised construction system options. All of these methods provide a wide range of ‘systems-based’ benefits including reduced time on site, construction efficiencies, easier handling, reduced OH&S issues and more cost effective construction; and also all the benefits of timber: beautiful, tactile, workable, lightweight and environmentally friendly

This free seminar will explore how mass and lightweight timber systems can be used today for multi-residential, commercial and public building applications. Come and hear industry experts discuss key design specification and supply details and present practical case studies on recently constructed buildings. These systems are here now and ready to be used - come and learn how.

This seminar is a must for all building and design professionals including architects, building designers, engineers, certifiers, developers, builders, regulators, educators and students.
