WoodSolutions seemed to be the key word of the conference as they have their hand in so many pies within the timber supply chain.
Eileen Newbury, the National Program Manager at WoodSolutions provided delegates with a brief overview of the new market opportunities for the Frame and Truss sector with the changes in the NCC 2019 to permit the use for fire-protected timber building elements in all classes of buildings.
Opportunities for lightweight timber building systems (pre-fabricated timber wall framing, timber floor cassettes) in the low- and mid-rise markets (2 to 6 storey buildings) – particularly for vertical schools and aged care buildings.
These changes just don’t happen without a lot of work being done behind the scenes. Whether it is creating Educational tools for architects, certifiers and others within the supply chain or the creation of the design tool guides that are brilliant, WoodSolutions has it all covered.
