Save with Early Bird on-line registration
March 6, 2018
Delegate registration is now available on-line at Early Bird rates for the Frame Australia 2018 conference and exhibition titled ‘Timber Offsite Construction’ that will attract designers and builders interested in finding out the latest in timber and engineered wood building systems.
Speaker program highlights include Nick Milestone of giant construction firm William Hare Group International who will present on ‘Disruption through prefabrication – the evolution and future of mass timber’ covering the advancements in technology that can result in low carbon, energy efficient buildings constructed quicker, lighter and cheaper than conventional building designs.
And a presentation by Andrew Dunn, CEO, Timber Development Association will cover global markets and cost comparisons for tall timber buildings, with a summary of building types and construction activity levels in North America and Europe, and comparisons to the Australian timber frame and mass timber construction markets now emerging.
Conference Director Kevin Ezard said “local construction of mid-rise multi-residential buildings is steadily becoming a strong market for prefabricated timber framing with cassette floor systems, that are reducing site time by weeks and delivering huge savings to builders.
“This rising demand has also led to a significant increase in automation and robotics in prefabrication plants, with production capacity in Australia currently growing at its fastest rate ever to meet the future supply levels required”.
‘Timber Offsite Construction’ will be held on Monday and Tuesday 18-19 June 2018 at Park Hyatt Melbourne, and for event details visit the website www.frameaustralia.com
