About the event
Explore the future of construction in the upcoming course, "Revolutionizing Construction: The Future of Timber Buildings". This event delves into the innovative use of timber in architecture, a sustainable alternative to traditional construction materials. Developed in collaboration with renowned universities and institutions, the course will unveil how timber construction could address global climate, resource, and housing challenges.
Participants can expect to gain insights into sustainable forest management, the environmental impact of timber constructions, and the benefits of prefabrication in the building process. They'll also learn about the cohesion and stability of timber load-bearing structures, circular timber building design typologies, and the inherent qualities of modern timber buildings.
Whether you're an architect, developer, engineer, consultant, policymaker, or student, this course provides a valuable perspective on the opportunities and cutting-edge practices in designing and building with timber. An exploration of this course will open the door to healthier, carbon-storing buildings and a sustainable future.
