It is also an exciting time for learning more about wood in commercial construction. We’ve had an enthusiastic response with registrations coming in a cracking pace — so get onto yours now!

We are seeing accelerating activity in mass timber building already this year. Red Stag Timber has components in production for the 5-storey Clearwater apartment building in Christchurch. The 9-storey Homeground building in CLT for Auckland City Mission has reached full height in downtown Auckland. We will have more exciting news to reveal next week too! More buildings are being costed than ever before in wood.

Featured speaker (pictured): Jasmax architect Daniela Vassura is based in their Auckland office. She will be speaking on one of the key projects she led — the 14000sq m Park Lane Living Well Village, where she was able to utilise her sustainable architecture experience acquired at ZEDfactory in London. Sustainable design is embedded in Jasmax’s philosophy and she contributes to it on a broader level as part of the Green Team.

Daniela has acquired a varied and rich experience through working on diverse projects that include large masterplans in China, offices in South Korea, residential developments in the UK, retrofit and renovations in Italy, specialised health facilities and mixed-use developments in Auckland and Christchurch. Jasmax is a household name in the New Zealand building industry, and we are pleased to have Daniela present at our conference this year.

Another speaker on the October programme is Jason Cordes is the Managing Director of Red Stag Investments & Wood Solutions. Red Stag has partnered with the Ministry of Primary Industry (MPI) and the Primary Growth Partnership Programme (PGP) to establish New Zealand’s first timber high rise reference building. The five storey apartment complex at Clearwater in Christchurch is the first of several timber reference buildings scheduled across New Zealand that will showcase the benefits of timber in mid-rise construction, from residential through to commercial applications.

In parallel, Red Stag will show case the largest timber building in New Zealand to enable the largest and most advanced Engineered Wood Product manufacturing plant based in Rotorua.
