Professor Gregory Nolan from the Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood from the University of Tasmania, and Britton Timbers managing director Shawn Britton will present a webinar on Tasmanian veneer on 2nd March 2021. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.
Highly sought after in the interior design industry for a broad range of applications, Tasmanian veneers have proven their versatility on beautiful furniture as well as custom doors and cabinetry. Preferred for its uniformity, veneer is perfect for covering vast expanses with a consistent look, particularly in large commercial fitouts. Veneer is often matched with solid-sawn timber of the same species in furniture, joinery and lining applications to facilitate a seamless colour palette.
Gregory Nolan is professor and director of the University of Tasmania's Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood, a broad, multidisciplinary research and education group that aspires to be a national leader in sustainable architectural design, building and applications with wood. Since 1994, Nolan has been involved with teaching in architecture and design as well as with research, development and extension aimed at improving the use of wood and timber products in sustainable building.
