Timber continues to be the preeminent material in residential design and construction because it is: natural, sustainable, easily workable, thermally efficient, when specified and finished correctly - durable and long-lasting, and because it is simply inspirationally beautiful!


However, appropriate design and specification are critical in delivering innovative, effective and cost efficient residential construction solutions. This seminar will focus on the key considerations providing clear and practical illustrations of best practices and processes.


This seminar brings together a selection of leading industry experts in this field to present, discuss and showcase:
- innovative and creative architectural design
- practical and efficient structural detailing and supply
- sustainability, and passive house design with timber
- timber flooring specification and installation, and
- external timber use – specifying correctly for longevity.


An update will also be provided on the WoodSolutions program and the suite of support resources now available to building professionals.


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