Extra one-day conference added to NZ WoodTECH 2017

10 July 2017

As an added bonus for those attending the WoodTECH 2017 conference in New Zealand, a one-day conference, Changing Perceptions of Engineered Timber in Construction will be run on the day after the WoodTECH 2017 conference, on Thursday 28 September.
It’s in Rotorua, it’s at the same venue and is likely to appeal to many of those in town attending the two-yearly sawing, scanning and mill optimisation event.

The Second Annual Changing Perceptions of Engineered Timber in Construction conference will be showcasing the use of engineered timber internationally as well as explore changes in timber use in New Zealand. The value of wood will be explored from different angles, including both emotive and economic responses to engineered timber buildings.

International speakers will share their experiences and learnings from overseas. Topics will include architectural, engineering and construction aspects of engineered timber buildings. This event is being hosted by a collaboration of local, regional and central government organisations with support from the Timber Design Society. Further details on the event will follow in next week’s issue.

If making travel plans for Rotorua in this week, you may well look to capitalise on the extra day on offer. For further information and registrations for the event, please click here.
