WoodSo­lu­tions sup­ports Frame 2017

Australasian Timber - - FRAME -

TO EN­COUR­AGE aware­ness of the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in tim­ber and wood con­struc­tion sys­tems for res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial build­ings, WoodSo­lu­tions have agreed to con­tinue their role as ex­clu­sive “Prin­ci­pal Sup­porter” for the Frame Aus­tralia 2017 Con­fer­ence ti­tled ‘Tim­ber Off­site Con­struc­tion’.

FWPA Na­tional Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ager Eileen New­bury said WoodSo­lu­tions was pleased to be as­so­ci­ated with the Frame event in join­ing in­dus­try trail-blaz­ers to un­der­stand the ben­e­fits and uses of pre-fab­ri­cated tim­ber and en­gi­neered wood con­struc­tion sys­tems.

“Through the WoodSo­lu­tions pro­grams we are ex­pand­ing aware­ness of new tim­ber build­ing sys­tems emerg­ing in Aus­tralia for the ben­e­fit of all de­sign­ers and spec­i­fiers, which in­cludes new ed­u­ca­tional and ad­vi­sory ser­vices that will ac­cel­er­ate the up­take of mas­sive tim­ber and tim­ber prefabrication in gen­eral.

“We are pro­duc­ing a com­pre­hen­sive range of Tech­ni­cal Guides for tim­ber and wood prod­uct de­sign, spec­i­fi­ca­tion and use, with all pub­li­ca­tions read­ily avail­able on-line at the WoodSo­lu­tions web­site,” Eileen said.

Con­fer­ence di­rec­tor Kevin Ezard added: “We are very pleased with WoodSo­lu­tions role in sup­port for Frame 2017 which will fo­cus on de­sign, man­u­fac­ture and con­struc­tion of pre­fab­ri­cated tim­ber build­ings from ini­tial con­cept stage to the com­pleted pro­ject.

“In­ter­na­tional and lo­cal ex­pert speak­ers will ex­plain ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign con­cepts, en­gi­neer­ing de­sign, codes and cost com­par­isons, with ex­am­ples of hous­ing and mul­tires­i­den­tial mid and high rise projects cur­rently be­ing built around Aus­tralia and glob­ally.

“De­sign­ers and builders are in­creas­ingly un­der­tak­ing projects with fully pan­elised tim­ber floors and walls for erec­tion in only a few days, and mid-rise multi-res­i­den­tial build­ings in tim­ber fram­ing or mass tim­ber in just weeks, pro­vid­ing huge pro­ject sav­ings of 25% or more.

“The speak­ers pro­gram and work­shops will pro­vide del­e­gates with a broad path­way to un­der­stand the process ben­e­fits and the achieve­ment of faster build times with lower con­struc­tion costs.”

‘Tim­ber Off­site Con­struc­tion’ will be held on Mon­day and Tues­day 19-20 June 2017 at Park Hy­att Mel­bourne. For more in­for­ma­tion and to regis­ter your in­ter­est in Frame 2017 visit the web­site www.frameaus­tralia. com and for WoodSo­lu­tions visit www.woodso­lu­tions.com.au
