Call for speakers - Changing Perceptions 2019

Friday 29 Mar 2019

New Zealand’s 4th Annual Changing Perceptions Conference (part of the WoodWorks service) is focussed on the growing use of engineered timber in commercial construction. It is scheduled to run on 3-4 September 2019 in Rotorua, New Zealand. This event will be showcasing the use of engineered timber case studies as well as exploring changes in timber use in New Zealand. The value of wood will be explored from different angles, including cost and climate change / carbon considerations.

The target audience for the event are developers, architects, engineers, building designers, specifiers and quantity surveyors. This conference will continue on from the previous three events in this series, exploring further the use of engineered timber in buildings both in New Zealand and what we can learn from others around the globe.

The organisers are working closely with a wide range of well-developed project managers, suppliers and engineers to develop a strong and innovative programme.

If you are an early adopter, developer, innovator, technology supplier, service provider or applied research practitioner within the engineered timber and construction sector, the Changing Perceptions team would like to hear from you.

The 2019 conference will include sessions on:

- Building Performance Issues: Do timber solutions stack up?
- Mass Timber for Commercial Building Solutions
- Multi-Residential Buildings: Framing, Mass Timber or Hybrid?
- Case Studies: Small, medium and large.

If you are interested in being considered as a presenter, or would like to recommend an early adopter, case study or international expert, please contact the conference organiser: John Stulen, Tel: +64 27 275 8011,
