Wood in Construction

With the lowest embodied energy and best thermal insulation of any mainstream construction materials, plus impeccable carbon credentials and significant cost savings to boot, it’s no wonder wood is the material of choice when it comes to designing and building sustainable and beautiful homes, offices, schools – in fact whatever you want to build.
This free event has been designed to provide a professional audience with the most up to date technical information on designing and building with wood as well as plenty of inspiration.
It includes CPD qualifying talks delivered by the Timber and Research Development Association and a tour of new buildings in the National Forest which demonstrate the use of timber as an integral part of sustainable construction.
The day includes presentations on:
> De-carbonising Construction
> Innovative Contemporary Buildings
> External Cladding
And a tour of examplar buildings within the National Forest
