Speaker/PresenterProfessor Gregory Nolan
This seminar will unpack WoodSolutions’ new Design Guide 46 on wood construction systems.
Design Guide 46 aims to assist practising structural engineers and other building design professionals to confidently develop conceptual designs for timber-rich buildings and structures. Taking a whole-of-process approach to the selection of timber-rich structural systems, this significant guide explores available structural systems, connections and material options, and potential design approaches. It also acts as a concise point of reference for understanding technical aspects of wood and timber products.
Professor Nolan will provide an overview of the guide and the construction systems it describes, before demonstrating how the guide can be used to develop a conceptual structural design for a timber-rich structure.
This seminar is a must for building and design professionals including engineers, architects, building designers, builders, and educators.
