Timber in Construction Materials

Organised by:

SCI's Construction Materials Group

SCI, London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

The use of timber as a structural material is not new. It has been used in construction for thousands of years and, arguably, it is our oldest building material. Although essentially made of cellulose, the chemical properties of timber are inherently complex. It is this complexity and variety that gives timber its wide-ranging ability to be used in a seemingly limitless range of structures and end uses. Contemporary construction of large buildings using timber shows a growing interest in the potential of building with timber on a scale that was not previously attainable.

This symposium presents a unique opportunity to learn about timber as a construction material. It will take attendees on a whistle stop tour of the use of timber in construction, focussing on timber as a construction material, the use of timber in historic buildings and modern innovations in changing the chemical properties of timber to improve performance in construction.
