Do the Tomorrow’s Timber Talk at your office

INCREASE YOUR KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE LATEST TRENDS IN BUILDING WITH WOOD

Architecture requires a combination of creative, critical thinking and knowledge of materials and products. The Tomorrow’s Timber Talks are an initiative to inspire architects, designers, construction developers, builders and policymakers and to update on the latest developments with wood and wood products for construction.

WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO THE TOMORROW’S TIMBER TALK

During the Tomorrow’s Timber Talk we would like to update you on sustainability, health and the diversity of possibilities with wood, especially in the field of the latest ‘Mass-Timber’ developments with which wood is a serious replacement for concrete and steel, such as Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL), Glued Laminated Timber (Glulam). Of course, materials for further finishing and interior design such as floors, roof trusses, facades, stairs, windows and doors are also included. 

The use of certified wood and wood products as building material is the first step towards sustainable buildings, small or large. By using certified wood you also help combat climate change, increase the absorption of CO2 by forests and prevent deforestation. In addition, certified wood is the ideal circular building material due to its renewable nature and good reusability.

WHAT DO YOU TAKE FROM THE WORKSHOP?

In addition to discussing myths that exist about building with wood, the latest developments are discussed about:

the principle of biobased construction;
– the latest developments of prefab options and construction process advantages of Mass Timber;
– the application possibilities of the latest generation of wood products;
– the sustainability benefits, including CO2, environmental impact and circularity, of using sustainable wood and wood products;
– the benefits for a healthy living environment and
– the future: what it takes for a “Timber Revolution”.
