WoodSolutions is conducting a free seminar to shed some light on the latest developments in lightweight timber frame and mass timber construction.

To be held on Thursday, 3rd June 2021 in Surry Hills, Sydney, the COVID-safe face-to-face seminar will feature various speakers at the forefront of contemporary construction methodologies. Three case studies will be presented, showcasing the use of timber in different applications; these include a modern all-timber sports stadium, a stunning CLT performance space, and a five-storey office building all utilising timber as part of the featured design.

The presentations will be followed by a discussion on new products and uses of engineered timber in lightweight timber-framed construction, including off-site manufactured elements such as cassette floors, bracing and stairs as well as hybrid timber constructions and mixing timber with other materials.

Information will be provided on NCC’s Performance-Based Design Brief for structural design, a new requirement in the NCC for all constructions.

WoodSolutions (TDA) is committed to enabling a safe event. To ensure suitable social distancing, places are limited and will be allocated on a first-to-register basis.
