Back by overwhelming demand, the Solid Wood Solutions conference and exhibition celebrates the rapid upward trajectory of materials such as cross-laminated timber, which are now available as sustainable, structural alternatives to steel and concrete. Come along to the Inmarsat, London, on 21 May 2019 for a day of discussion, networking and innovation alongside today’s forerunners of the engineered timber industry.


Solid Wood Solutions will address timber’s use in the construction industry as a versatile, natural material that is undergoing a revival where it is used in widespread applications from high-quality architecture to the realisation of contemporary and sustainable buildings.

  • Nick Milestone, Chairman, TRADA
  • Anthony Thistleton, Founding Director, Waugh Thistleton Architects
  • Ricardo Candel, Technical Director, AKT II

We’re proud that TRADA members are due to dominate this year’s stage and will between them deliver on a wide range of subjects – encompassing case studies, innovation, and stimulating debates. TRADA Chairman Nick Milestone is also due to chair at the one-day event.


As engineered timber technology is one of the fastest growing offsite methods of construction, this event is designed to inspire through innovation. The event consists of a bespoke exhibition of circa 25-30 companies from within the CLT, LVL and glulam technology sectors, plus complementary solutions such as SIPS and cladding/fenestration solutions.
