WoodSolutions ‘Lunch & Learn’ launched to building professionals

The presentations will educate and inspire innovation in the use of wood in the design and construction of residential, commercial and infrastructure projects. They will be conducted by experienced wood advisors who will visit firms on site throughout the Sydney metropolitan area.
A range of topics are being offered to architects, engineers, building designers, project managers, building surveyors, certifiers and other building professionals. These include Inspirational Projects, Specification, Wood Coatings, Design for Durability, Fire Safety and Performance of Wood in Multi-Residential and Commercial Buildings, Using Wood in Bushfire Prone Areas, Maximising Green Star Ratings with Wood, and Wood and Sustainable Building.
WoodSolutions spokesperson Ric Sinclair, said “We want to make it easier for building professionals to specify wood and to understand more about timber and wood-based products. Lunch & Learn presentations will provide professionals with that opportunity and increase their knowledge and ideas in the structural and aesthetic use of wood.”
A successful trial of Lunch & Learn presentations will see the presentations offered in other regions around the country.
