The design, structural and sustainability benefits of timber will be explored at Timber Expo at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, 25 & 26 September 2012 where a huge programme of timber-related activity will take place including seminars, networking, technical tours and product demonstrations all taking place within the main exhibition area.
Running across both days the Timber Talks seminar programme will include nearly 100 sessions and will be one of the most comprehensive, stimulating and thought provoking programmes dealing with timber.
Issue-based seminars will cover a range of topics, including the government's flagship Green Deal, Part L amendments, the EU Timber Regulation, building information modelling (BIM), designing to Passivhaus and Fabric First principles, environmental product declarations (EPDs), CE marking and the EU Construction Products Regulation. Similarly wide-ranging will be the building product presentations including timber connections, SIPs, modified wood, decking and cladding, fixtures, and protective coatings.
Those entries shortlisted for the 2012 Wood Awards will also be delivering key seminars on their flagship projects.
The sessions will be delivered from a diverse range of individuals and organisations ranging from TRADA, UKTFA and BWF to Arup, Kingspan, Ramboll, Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants and the Olympic Delivery Authority. Plus you will also be able to hear more from the deserving winners of the Timber Expo and TRADA-sponsored TTJ Innovation Award, who will be revealing the secrets of their success.
The Timber Talks programme will take place inside three separate bespoke timber theatres created by UKSIPS, Frame Wise and Deeside Timberframe with James Jones & Sons, especially for Timber Expo. For more information and to pre-register visit: www.timber-expo.co.uk/whatson
