WoodWorks 2023 South gets top marks

Friday 31 Mar 2023

After hosting the popular WoodWorks NZ conferences since 2016 either in the North Island or virtual, the first conference in Christchurch this week was sold out and very well received. Drawing a capacity audience of architecture, engineering and construction professionals the new half-day plus half-day conference format followed by site visits for WoodWorks 2023 South was welcomed by everyone. The case study presentations included a number of large local mass timber projects.

Following the technical sessions on Wednesday afternoon, conference delegates boarded buses to enjoy site visits to two sites. First up was the very impressive new AgResearch offices, with enough large CLT, LVL and glulam exposed architectural and structural features to impress any mass timber advocate. The next stop was to the new Marian College campus due to open later this year. This must be New Zealand’s most innovative new school! Thanks to our WoodWorks partners and sponsors, speakers and hosts for making this event a success – especially to our site visit hosts at from Naylor Love and Armitage Williams Construction teams.
