As the trend to sustainability gathers pace, Frame Australia is launching a unique series of CPD-accredited Webinars featuring innovative timber and mass wood construction projects.
The use of offsite timber and mass wood building construction in Australia has doubled in just two years. This trend is being driven by the financial and environmental benefits delivered by timber and mass wood buildings.
Demonstrably proven faster construction times, higher build quality, less site labour, less waste, less disruption and lower environmental impact mean lower project costs overall.
Innovative materials and related digital technologies will drive costs lower and mounting environmental pressures due to climate change will only accelerate this trend.
Frame Australia’s one hour webinar series focuses on real projects, real challenges and real solutions, with monthly webinars commencing in February, featuring:
- From concept to completion – the only webinars that cover the entire design and build process.
- Presenters include developers, architects, engineers, builders, and key suppliers.
- Learn from the successes (and challenges) of the pioneers.
- A wide range of innovative timber and mass wood projects
- Discussion focus on ‘real’ challenges and ‘real’ solutions with interactive Q&A
- CPD accredited.
The first webinar broadcasts on Wednesday 17 February at 11.00 AEDT to discuss the Marrickville Library, overall winner at the Australian Timber Design 2020 Awards.
Presenters will include the project architects BVN, builder CD Construction Group, and timber supplier Rubner Holzbau from Italy.
Timber products used in the Library included Glulam columns, mullions and transoms, plywood, blackbutt acoustic baffling, Tasmanian oak acoustic panel ceilings, batten balustrading and screens.
The panel will discuss technological and logistic skills crucial in the supply and erection of the 54 tall cylindrical columns with pre-assembled metal components, with a core of steel and a wrapping in Glulam. These significant components were prefabricated by Rubner Holzbau in Italy and shipped to Sydney ready for erection on site.
Registration is only $85 including GST and to register for the event visit www.frameaustralia.com
Nationally CPD accredited for 1.5 Points by the Australian Institute of Building (AIB).
