The conference will focus on currently expanding local and global markets for timber buildings, and the digital future ahead in design, manufacture and construction of timber frame multi-residential and mass timber commercial buildings.
Speaker sessions will incorporate key themes of Design, Technology, Manufacturing and Construction, to provide delegates with insight into the latest developments in timber prefabrication and building systems, and collaboration emerging in digital data distribution throughout the complete supply chain.
With this focus on technology the program will include demonstrations of digital concepts in practice, including Virtual Reality on-site data communication in construction, and ‘real-life’ management of manufacturing equipment operation.
These 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.
Sessions will include case studies and presentations on current building projects ranging from low-rise housing to mid-rise multi-residential dwellings and high-rise apartments, utilising offsite timber frame panelised wall and cassette floor systems, along with CLT and other mass timber building systems.
Delegate tours will visit a range of timber building construction sites, prefabrication and panelised manufacturing plants, and recently completed buildings that are outstanding examples of timber structures.
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.
