WoodSolutions is organising a free webinar on ‘Designing for Buildability – Tolerances, Handling and Speed in Construction’ on Tuesday, September 28, 2021.

About the webinar

Designing for buildability is critical for fast construction and the assurance of avoiding surprises onsite. By following certain principles, timber buildings can be installed faster than conventional buildings.

The webinar will feature presentations from Adam Jones, technical manager for CLT manufacturer XLam and Rohan Jones, general manager of leading mass timber construction company, Savcon on a range of critical design and construction topics including:

  • Designing to allow for tolerances in connections
  • Practical onsite tips for timber assembly
  • Critical design and buildability advice to enable fast and successful installation

Adam Jones, technical manager – XLam

Specialising in the design, manufacture and assembly for engineered wood products (EWPs), Jones is deeply engaged with building specifiers to create low carbon and healthy buildings. He was one of the leading contributors to the WoodSolutions Structural Engineering Technical Guide for EWPs for Australian Engineers. He is passionate about assisting design teams in adopting mass timber products with structure, acoustics, fire, regulations, manufacturing and assembly being important considerations.

Rohan Jones, general manager – Savcon

Jones is the general manager of Savcon, a position he has held since 2011, prior to which he was Savcon’s construction manager for over a decade. For the past 3 years, he has been responsible for identifying growth opportunities within the industry. With the emergence of mass timber construction in Australia, he has spearheaded industry specialists to form an elite team, which has enabled Savcon’s growth and development into becoming one of the global industry leaders in mass timber construction.
