Further Information

If this course isn't quite what you're looking for, or you have any further questions, the following pages may be of use:

A substantial body of research and literature has been produced in UK in the last 10 years regarding the performance properties and environmental advantages of the use of local timber as a building material. However, to date, experts on the subject have struggled in disseminating this knowledge effectively to the built environment industry. In particular the challenge has been in overcoming the myths that surround the effective use of UK grown timber in the building industry. This course aims to brush away subjective misconceptions and change practitioners’ perceptions by providing evidence based case studies that present indigenous timber as a viable option for a broad range of construction uses.

Who is it for?

This session is designed to be suitable for anyone involved in the design of buildings and building construction details within the Built Environment sector,  including: architects, building engineers, building surveyors and building energy assessors.. In particular, the course would be relevant to those who are looking to reduce the carbon emissions of buildings through alternative approaches to building structures.
