Taking timber buildings to the next level

The UK has led the way in pushing boundaries of building with timber over the past 20 years. It's time to take timber buildings to the next level!

The Better Timber Buildings conference on 15 November 2018 in London aspires to support individuals looking to hone their talents when it comes to designing superb structures in timber.

The day will involve four central sessions and attempts to unite inspirational case studies with hands-on guidance where high-performance is critical.
