With face-to-face seminars some way off in the future, now is an ideal time to leverage new. videoconferencing skills. Built on the popularity of WoodSolutions seminars and Timber Talks podcasts, the webinars also benefit from the ability to engage with international speakers and panellists.
Run on the Zoom platform, many of the one hour webinars have a panel or a Q&A opportunity after the main presentation.
Tuesday August 4th 1100 AEST Post and Plate – the next evolution in Mass Timber Buildings
In the relatively short time modern mass timber buildings have been built, we have seen the rapid development in the form of construction, commencing with honeycomb closely spaced walls, to post and beam and now Post and Plate.
Post and plate buildings are where the floor plate sits directly onto columns removing the need for beams that take time to install and interfere with the building’s services. First seen with Brock Commons, an 18 storey student accommodation building in Canada, this form of construction is a fast and efficient construction method.
This presentation will explore what is Post and Plate construction, the various forms of it, Rothoblaas’ spider connection, Xlam’s band beam and glue bonded systems and discuss what is required to make it successful.
Tuesday August 11th 1100 AEST Case Study: Multiple Perspectives of Wood - John Septimus Roe Anglican School, Beechboro, WA
Timber is a natural organic material with many uses as a building material. When used well timber provides not only the primary structural element in a building, but also the interior finish and feature bringing a sense of warmth, health and well-being into the building and to its occupants.
John Septimus Roe Anglican School is a multi-award winning educational facility in Perth, Western Australia, expressing multiple applications of timber in sustainable design, including the highly acclaimed kindergarten and senior school administration building.
This webinar discusses the use of timber in the JSRAS, the benefits of using wood in the built environment as the primary architectural and engineered structural element, and as a key feature and finish contributing to the health and well-being of the occupants, while at the same time benefiting the environment.
