Three years in the making and backed by 23 years of experience and expertise, TOC2022 delivered the best timber offsite construction event yet.
“What a great event after such a long wait – by far the best line-up in the 23-year history of the conference,” reflected event Founder, Kevin Ezard.
TOC2022 promised world-renowned and local presenters that would provide a pathway through the design and construction process and outline the latest technologies and practices for successful building project outcomes.
The opening address by expert and pioneer in the use of engineered timber, London architect Anthony Thistleton from Waugh,Thistleton Architects, showed the way. Anthony asserted that the net zero carbon future is in our hands, starting with sustainable building design.
Over 2 days, more than 200 delegates from Australia, New Zealand, Europe, the UK and North America gained insight and inspiration from sessions in building design influences, construction productivity, manufacturing and technology, and global wood building projects; with a focus on identifying efficiencies, enhancing quality, and showing how innovation can create and determine new values and change how we design and construct.
A key part of Timber Offsite Construction (formerly Frame Australia) events are the project panels and forums. At TOC2022, the building project panel presentations were ‘living examples’ of the design and construction of mass timber buildings, with architects, engineers and key suppliers explaining their major challenges and solutions, imparting practical knowledge to all.
A ‘no-secrets-spared’ approach, sharing the bad with the good, flowed into the forum sessions.
“The discussion on ‘what not to do’ is just as, if not more, important than ‘what we know to do’. There is nothing more positive nor proactive than these open forums.” Mario Savva, Managing Director Savcon
This open honest dialogue reflects the growing confidence developing in the offsite timber and mass wood sector and its world-leading projects; delivering exceptional value to all delegates – in person and virtual.
The virtual option at the first ‘hybrid’ event delivered. However, the benefits of meeting ‘face-to-face’ were evident to all.
“In-person delegates commented on how essential it was to network and connect again.” said Kevin Ezard. “Exhibitors particularly welcomed the opportunity to make new contacts and engage in a dynamic exchange of ideas.”
And, TOC2023 will deliver again next year. SAVE THE DATE! 20-21 June 2023.
