Tuesday morning’s panel sessions will focus on several of Australia’s outstanding building projects using offsite timber construction systems. Key participants will discuss challenges and share insights into the design and build process of their projects.

Developers, architects, engineers, builders, fabricators, and building materials suppliers will discuss their involvement in the following projects:

  • Engineered wood office buildings for Ballarat GovHub, Ballarat, VIC
  • Residence in Glulam and CLT at Merrawarp Rd, Ceres, VIC
  • The Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Primary School, Sydney, NSW
  • Vertical office extension of 5 storeys at 276 Flinders Street, Melbourne, VIC

Afternoon workshops will create an open discussion on the “nuts and bolts” for offsite building projects. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss cost engineering guides, comparisons between systems, panelisation, software and manufacturing technologies, including timber connectors, Fire Protection Compliance and regulatory code changes.

Conference director Kevin Ezard said the conference and exhibition leads the way for global development and innovation.

“The expanded two-day program meets the need for more focused topics. Our panels and workshops provide an overview on the pathway for offsite construction and talk through real projects.” Mr Ezard said.

“We’ve assembled the best of the best, locally and globally giving our delegates access to people that are directly involved in the latest technology and construction developments.”

The Timber Offsite Construction Conference and Exhibition will take place on 17-18 June 2019 at Melbourne’s Crown Promenade. The increased interest in the sector has also led to the conference move to a new, larger venue comfortably accommodating the expected 400 attendees.

In addition to the impressive line-up, exhibitors from across the globe will display the latest products and systems for offsite timber construction and mass wood systems.
