WoodWorks attracts wood construction professionals

Friday 23 Sep 2022

Running in early November, the 7th annual WoodWorks mass timber conference is bringing together leaders in engineered wood design and construction from across New Zealand. Mass timber technology developments, including LVL and CLT, prefabrication and connection systems are set to transform commercial buildings.

Strong interest with leading companies from architecture, design, specification and construction management registering groups of their managers to attend. As part of the event, Red Stag Timberlab will be hosting site tours at their cross laminated timber plant on the edge of Whakarewarewa Forest before the conference.

Early adopters to mass timber for commercial and multi-residential buildings have seen advantages including carbon sequestration, build accuracy, early contractor engagement and speed of construction. Now wood’s advantages in creating biophilic environments and long-term sustainability are also helping drive demand.

The WoodWorks 2022 Conference will continue to showcase the practical experiences of a range of building professionals and focuses on completed New Zealand and Australian projects. Each year the event showcases an inspirational wood expert from leading tall timber exemplar building projects overseas.

Registrations for the event can be made on the WoodWorks 2022 event website
