The 2018 conference will focus on timber and engineered wood buildings both locally and globally, with sessions on the key themes of Building Design, Technology, Manufacturing and Construction.
The Monday speaker presentation and discussion forum sessions will focus on the process of design, manufacture and construction of timber buildings, with the key topics of Building Design, Technology, Manufacturing, and Construction.
Tuesday sessions will include case studies and panel discussions on building construction innovations and projects, advances in prefabricated manufacturing, and emerging digital technologies. Afternoon delegate tours will visit timber prefabrication plants, building construction sites, and inspirational timber building projects.
Following the Frame event a Timber Construction Tour to Sydney from Wednesday 20 to Friday 22 is an additional option for delegates, and bookings can be made by contacting Timber Development Association.
Delegate tours will include a selection of timber frame and engineered wood construction sites, including medium density residential developments and high-rise multi-residential and commercial buildings.
