Wood for Good seminar dates unveiled

3 October 2013

A series of Wood for Good seminars and CPD sessions are due to take place over the next couple of months, with BM TRADA playing a key role in the delivery.

The first seminar will see expert speakers from across the construction industry present a series of case studies demonstrating the benefits of using timber across a range of sectors as part of Wood for Good’s forthcoming ‘Growing Communities: Planning for a Sustainable Future’ event.

The one-day event – which takes place on October 10th at Bristol City Hall – is aimed at procurement teams, planners, policy-makers, architects, contractors, developers and others involved in the design and delivery of a sustainable built environment.

There will be a free CPD session for architects and contractors in the afternoon called Building Sustainably with Timber. Meanwhile, the first of the BM TRADA events, aimed at architects, takes place on November 4th at The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, London. A second event, designed for architects and engineers, takes place on November 20th at the Holiday Inn, Bristol. Both events are half-day sessions, covering topics such as modern methods of construction using British timber, timber’s role in sustainable building and an overview of EC5.

The seminars are part of a fresh new package of CPD training designed for architects, engineers, insurers and local authorities, and delivered by BM TRADA’s Technical Consultants. The training will encompass a wide range of timber-related topics, including cladding, connections, Eurocode 5, specification, durability and modern methods of construction.
