Market trends are creating long-term opportunities for prefabricated building systems, and the Timber Offsite Construction event has unique strategic positioning to achieve broad understanding of timber system benefits to the construction sectors. 
The sessions program will present topics on design, manufacture and construction of timber offsite buildings from the initial concept stage to the finished project, providing a broad pathway to understand the process benefits and the achievement of faster build times with lower construction costs.
