This Workshop and the Guide for Wood Construction Systems is designed to assist practicing structural engineers and architects to confidently develop conceptual structural designs for timber rich buildings and structures.
As many design professionals working on commercial scale structures are typically skilled with concrete and steel structures, the Guide for Wood Construction Systems takes a whole-of-process approach to the selection of timber-rich structural systems.
Experienced design professionals will speak on recent examples of timber building projects in Australia and Europe to illustrate the design, structural performance and cost savings of timber buildings.
This seminar is a must for structural engineers and architects.
