Pushing Boundaries: Stretching Imaginations

At the heart of Timber Expo is the most comprehensive and in-depth seminar programme covering the timber sector.

Organised by TRADA, the Timber Focus seminars are a key element of the show and a central part of the Expo experience. The programme will provide valuable insight into crucial industry topics, pressing issues and outstanding projects – at no cost!

With anticipation already growing around the eight Timber Focus sessions, why not take a first look at one of the sessions – Pushing Boundaries: Stretching Imaginations.

This seminar session will examine the opportunities for innovation in timber around the world and new possibilities in the UK. Speakers will be drawn from top engineering firms including Arup, Ramboll UK and Buro Happold and will focus on boundary-pushing initiatives such as: building erection times, more efficient connections, energy efficiency and taller buildings.
