NEWBuildS Annual Workshop 2014, Tall Wood Building Design Workshop & FIBRE Conference

The NEWBuildS research network is entering the final year of its operations, with a lot of the 37 research projects having either been completed or reached the final phase of the research. A vast amount of technical information are being generated that will contribute to design and construction of multi-storey and non-residential buildings.

A Workshop has been scheduled for May 7-8, 2014 in Vancouver to disseminate the research findings to practitioners and researchers. This year’s Workshop will also feature a series of presentations from NEWBuildS graduate students and post-doctoral fellows on a team design project of a 20-storey wood-hyrbid building, and two keynote presentations from Professor Stefan Winter, Technical University of Munich and Dr. Samual Glass, US Forest Products Laboratory.

This two-day event will be of interest to builders, designers, building regulators, producers and researchers who would like to learn more about the latest development in research and design of multi-storey and non-residential wood construction in Canada, USA and Europe. Attendance is complimentary, but registration is required. Please contact kenneth.koo@fpinnovations.ca to register.

Thank you for your support.
