The Green Register's Hot Topic 2018 Event: Timber in Construction

Here at The Green Register, we're looking forward to celebrating all things timber next month as we welcome a range of professionals from across the construction industry to share their experiences and insights with us on this versatile material.

Delegates can expect an exciting mix of talks and illustrated case studies, as well as an interactive (and appropriately seasonal!) session faciliated by Aaron Coleby from Bristol's Real World Visuals and Matt Harrison from White Design: How much Carbon in a Yuletide Log? Aaron and Matt will be testing delegates' knowledge about timber by asking some challenging questions that will blow away some common myths, enlighten the audience and spark some healthy debate. Participants will be given tokens for each correct answer and the winner will receive a real chocolate yuletide log for their own consumption!

Other presentations include:

  • A critical analysis of forestry practices in the UK and beyond
  • Case studies of Zaha Hadid architect’s new Forest Green Rovers building and the innovative cross-laminated timber (CLT) building for Vitsoe
  • A contractor’s and a structural engineer’s perspective on using timber in construction
  • The specification of wood fibre products
  • Technical detailing of fixings for timber products

... And make sure to join us after the talks for networking and festive drinks (with thanks to our sponsors Eurban!) 

The event will also feature a range of exhibitors, including Aptus Fasteners, PYC Group, MBC Timberframe and Roundwood Design Ltd

We are delighted to be partnering for this event with Wood Knowledge, TRADA, EBS and Greenheart Sustainable Construction.
