‘Timber Offsite Construction’ is organised by Frame Australia, now in its 20th year, and is the only national conference and exhibition for timber and mass wood building systems in residential and commercial construction.
To be held 18-19 June at Park Hyatt Melbourne the 2018 conference will focus on market expansion in timber buildings both locally and globally, and the digital future now emerging in design, manufacture and construction of timber frame multi-residential and mass timber commercial buildings.
Speaker sessions will incorporate the key themes of Building Design, Technology, Manufacturing and Construction, to provide delegates with insight into the latest developments in timber prefabrication and building systems, and the collaboration required for digital data management throughout the complete supply chain.
With this focus on technology the program will include demonstrations of digital concepts in practice, including Virtual Reality data communication on construction sites, and ‘real-life’ management of manufacturing equipment in operation.
Sessions will also include case studies and presentations on current building developments ranging from low-rise housing to mid-rise multi-residential dwellings and high-rise apartments, utilising offsite timber frame panelised wall and cassette floors, plus CLT and other mass timber systems.
Delegate tours will visit a range of timber building construction sites, prefabrication and panelised manufacturing plants, and recently completed buildings that are outstanding examples of timber structures.
Conference director Kevin Ezard said “suppliers have an exceptional opportunity to access a wide range of construction market sectors that have a growing interest in timber buildings, which offers significant growth potential in the next decade.
“Our objective is to inspire exchange between delegates and suppliers to create opportunities for offsite prefabricated timber systems in building to benefit construction, and to achieve more sustainable outcomes”.
