Today’s interest in engineered timber is driven by both technological advances and the growing concern for the environment and sustainable construction practices. As a construction material timber has gone from near ubiquity, to marginalisation, to a contemporary resurgence.

The Solid Wood Solutions conference and exhibition will address timber’s use in the construction industry as a versatile, natural material that is undergoing a revival where it is used in widespread applications in high-quality architecture to the realisation of cutting edge structural engineering within contemporary building design. Designed to inspire through innovation, the conference will also provide a valuable networking opportunity where guests will be able to gain insights from industry leaders who are shaping the future of the construction industry.

The conference will begin with an introduction from Nick Milestone, Chairman of Trada. The international speaker line-up will include Andrew Goodwin, Managing Director of B&K Structures, who will be explaining the design and delivery of hybrid structures with green credentials, Daniel Kressig, Sales Engineer at Züblin Timber, will be discussing complex structures in timber, Jannick Jahnke, Sales Engineer at Simonin SAS, will be raising important questions surrounding glulam roofing solutions.

The event consists of a bespoke exhibition of circa 25-30 companies from within the engineered timber technology sectors, plus complementary solutions such as structural insulated panels (SIPS), cladding and fenestration solutions.
