Frame News

The major national event for design, manufacture and construction of timber and mass wood buildings

"Now in our 20th year, the objective is to inspire exchange between delegates and suppliers to create opportunities for offsite timber building systems, to provide benefits in construction and to achieve more sustainable outcomes"

The digital future is underway – and will be highlighted at the annual Timber Offsite Construction 2018 conference and exhibition with presentations on the latest digital platforms for design, manufacture and construction of timber buildings.

Speaker sessions will focus on the key themes of Concept & Design, Technology, Manufacturing and Construction, to provide delegates with insight into the process elements and collaboration involved in construction of timber frame multi-residential and mass timber commercial buildings.

Topics will cover the latest developments in building design; project finance; BIM and digital data platforms; automated manufacturing; panelised construction systems; along with examples of integrated housing and mid-rise developments. 

A vital topic inclusion is digitisation technologies and communication systems to enable building construction projects to be significantly more efficient and cost-effective. 

And in manufacturing, cloud based digital platforms and data exchange to the entire wood products value chain with tools and services to increase productivity and production efficiency.

These industry initiatives combined with new technologies have the power to change the future of the built environment, in creating smarter and more efficient processes for construction of sustainable and cost-efficient timber buildings. 

With this focus on Technology the program will include demonstrations of digital concepts in practice, along with new technologies in digital exchange, with visual experiences in VR for individual data communication and ‘real-life’ management of manufacturing and construction applications.  

Delegate tours will visit a range of timber frame and mass wood construction sites, panelised building component manufacturing plants, and recently completed buildings that exemplify timber in construction.

This unique event is at the leading edge of knowledge and performs a pivotal role in information sharing, with attendees including architects, engineers, property developers and builders; along with suppliers of timber and engineered wood, software, manufacturing equipment, pre-fabricated building systems, building materials and products.
