Discover the latest timber design and construction options in a unique, hands-on event.
The Australian Timber Design Workshop (ATDW) is a two-day intensive professional workshop made for building design professionals interested in timber-rich construction to develop skills, confidence and networks in a unique, hands-on event. The workshop combines self-paced online learning, presentations with key industry speakers, and learning-by-making workshop sessions. The University of Tasmania and the University of Queensland are collaborating to deliver this course with concurrent workshops running:
• In Tasmania at the School of Architecture and Design facilities at Newnham, Launceston.
• In Queensland at the University of Queensland facilities, St Lucia Campus, Brisbane.
You'll design solutions with large-scale, industry provided timber components, assemble them in our workshop and test items to failure.
- Maintain and increase your skills in timber design and construction with expert presentations and practical workshop sessions.
- Learn about the latest research findings on timber, including its capacity and contribution to a low-carbon economy.
- Collect your electronic certificate on completion of course.
