The idea of using timber in development appeals to many, whether delivering the smallest tiny home or a 50 storey office tower.
However, while driven by timber’s many inherent benefits, the progress of the development can be impacted by higher than expected cost estimates. There are of course many factors which influence the total cost of a project, but perhaps one of the most significant is the use of an efficient structural system in the design.
In this presentation, Laurence Ritchie will introduce the different structural systems available to a timber building in the context of cost efficiency and suitability for specific demands. Beyond cost efficiency, well designed timber structural systems can have a significant impact on the aesthetics and feel of a space. This really is a key success factor for any design, and will be valuable knowledge for any designer or cost consultant.
