Organisers of the Solid Wood Solutions conference and exhibition have today announced that the event will now be held the day after the Fabric First Event at the Inmarsat Conference Centre, London, on the 16 September.
Solid Wood Solutions will showcase the very best in engineered timber by creating a platform for the industry’s pioneers to present some of the most prestigious projects from across the UK and Europe. As sustainability and offsite construction are high on the building agenda – this is the essential event to learn first-hand from the timber industry leaders and innovators. Wood may be one of the world’s oldest building materials and this is an outstanding opportunity to discover why it is now the most advanced.
Traditionally these events have always been held back to back and now the date has become available at the Inmarsat Conference Centre, organisers have been able to reschedule. It is the first time in the events five year history that it will be held in London and by moving Solid Wood Solutions to a London venue, organisers expect this to be a sell-out event.
Speakers for the event so far include:
Andy Boutle BIM, Manager at Kier Construction – “Student Accommodation in UEA Norwich – First Project to be Fully BIM Level 2 Compliant”
Tim Snelson, Associate Director at Arup Associates – “Timber in Commercial Offices”
Simon Brambles, Architect at 3D Reid – “Taplow Retail Park”
Andrew Waugh, Founding Director of Waugh Thistleton Architects – “Housing Large – Timber Systems in Medium Rise Application”
Alex Smith, Associate at Hawkins\Brown – “17-21 Wenlock Road – Building a 10 Storey CLT/Hybrid structure in London”
Kate Edmondson, Architect at Penoyre & Prasad LLP – “Case Study on Middle Row Primary School”
As engineered timber is one of the fastest growing modern methods of construction, this event is designed to inspire through innovation. The event will consist of a bespoke exhibition of circa 25-30 companies from within the cross laminated timber and glulam technology sectors plus complementary solutions such as SIPS and cladding/fenestration solutions with a conference of approximately 200 delegates.
