Event Type: Conference Day One
Date: Thursday 11 October 2018
Location: Broncos Leagues Club, 98 Fulcher Road, Red Hill, Brisbane

Event Description

This workshop is now regrettably full. This workshop is designed to assist practicing structural engineers and architects to confidently develop conceptual structural designs for timber-rich buildings and structures.

Event Program

Registrations for this workshop are now closed - we have reached capacity. Please email sarah@timberqueensland.com.au to be placed on the wait list. 

As many design professionals working on commercial scale structures are typically skilled with concrete and steel structures, WoodSolutions presents A Guide for Wood Construction Systems, a whole-of-process approach to the selection of timber-rich structural systems. In conjunction with the release of this Guide, WoodSolutions will also host a workshop where 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.
