News Updates

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 2018 conference will focus on timber and engineered wood buildings both locally and globally, with speaker sessions on the key themes of Building Design, Technology, Manufacturing and Construction.

Speaker presentations and discussion forums will cover the broad spectrum of a pathway to design, manufacture and construct multi-residential and commercial buildings, with highlights including:

  • low carbon, energy efficient outcomes;
  • BIM and 3D design digital platforms;
  • plant automation and robotics in prefabrication;
  • integrated construction management;
  • timber and engineered wood system examples; and
  • current major building projects around Australia.

Panel sessions will include in-depth case studies of mid-rise residential dwellings utilising offsite timber frame panelised walls and cassette floors, plus high-rise apartments and commercial buildings using engineered timber construction.

Delegate tours will visit residential and commercial timber building construction sites; prefabrication and panelised manufacturing plants; and recently completed building projects that are outstanding examples of architectural and engineering design in timber structures.

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