Taking our timber buildings to the next level

TRADA is excited to introduce Better Timber Buildings, a stimulating one-day conference focused on inspiring and improving timber's competitive advantage by learning from our collective experience. Set aside 15 November 2018 and join us at the Royal Geographic Society in the heart of London for a day of talks, Q&As, and energetic discussion.


Run by TRADA in partnership with its service provider Exova BM TRADA, the conference is aimed at everyone – from architects and engineers to suppliers and clients – and 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 practical hands-on guidance where high-performance is critical.


“The Better Timber Buildings conference is about switching tack,” says TRADA’s Rupert Scott. “Timber’s popularity continues to grow but now, more than ever, we need to look further and begin taking our timber buildings to the next level. This means aspiring to do a better job right through the chain – specification to completion – and the best way to start is collectively.”


TRADA members and early bird bookings receive discounts. Limited student tickets are also available on a first come, first served basis. Please see the table below for further information. All attendees will receive a printed copy of the NSTS, which retails for £32.
