Matilda Veneer offers an AIA-accredited compulsory professional development (CPD) course on timber veneer.

Delivered by a Matilda Veneer team member, the free one-hour presentation titled ‘Veneer: the intricate basics’ is designed to give architects a broader understanding of all aspects of timber veneer.

While many architects have an affinity with timber and timber products, some are wary of timber’s natural variation, which has the potential to result in outcomes that may vary from the design brief as well as client expectations.

Keeping this in mind, Matilda Veneer’s CPD presentation covers everything from resource procurement to lacquers, with the objective of providing better understanding of timber veneers. Through this understanding, participants can gain the ability to specify beautiful, unique and natural timber veneers with confidence.

The presentation begins with the basics defining what veneer is, its features and the various ways timber veneers can be used to give unrivalled outcomes. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and add to the discussion so the presentation can be tailored to the participants’ specific needs and understanding.

The topic of sustainability is also discussed in detail. Matilda Veneer and the veneer industry are proud of the many environmental benefits of using veneer. With a true understanding of the processes in place, participants will quickly realise the benefits, both commercial and environmental of using this amazing, renewable and beautiful range of products.

Participants will earn 1 formal CPD point towards their continued learning by attending one of these presentations. There is time allocated at the end of the presentation for questions and a short, painless, assessment task.
