This seminar focused on the key design considerations for structural engineers - from concept to construction, and launched new timber engineering preliminary design software, TimberTech.
Timber has been used in many applications, ranging from residential housing to marine structures, and more recently mid-rise and multi-storey buildings.
Held on February 27th at Holmesglen TAFE, Chadstone, the site of the WoodSolutions Mid-rise demonstration model, this seminar focussed on principles of best practice Mid-rise Timber Construction to maximise productivity.
The panel of presenters dicsussed:
