Timber @ UKCW

Architectural timber structures and award winning designs will be on display at the NEC, including a number of full scale buildings.

Hear from leading international architects, developers and contractors who are pioneering the use of CLT, Glulam and other forms of structural timber in landmark projects at  TRADA's timber theatre.

Mission Sustainable @ UKCW 

UKCW is making a commitment to reduce its impact on the environment as much as possible this year by working with all its stakeholders. Timber has a crucial part to play in this role as we all look to reach carbon neutral by 2050. This year's event will stage a number of talks aimed at assisting industry in achieving sustainability goals in the context of a climate emergency.

Innovation @ UKCW

A special area focused on driving innovation, supported by the Construction Innovation Hub, which is part of the Government's industrial strategy to transform construction over the next 3 years. Events will show how digitalisation, collaboration, and a whole culture change in how we build will place the sector on the best possible footing to capitalise on the fourth industrial revolution. 

How can we place utmost value on quality over cost and stop the race to the bottom? How can we bring together values of speed, quality, sustainability, diversity and social cohesion to materialise their benefits for society and its citizens?
