Understanding Corrosion for Structural Steel – Sustainability through Durability- Presented by Remedy Asset | 10:30 AM, 8th June 2022

The best way to minimise the corrosion is to employ sound corrosion management practices. But how should specifiers go about this? How are they able to tell whether their particular projects (or particular parts of their projects) are susceptible to corrosion? And in what circumstances should they seek the advice of a corrosion expert? Learn more.

Integrating Louvres & Screens into Modular Buildings – Presented by Louvreclad | 12:00 PM, 8th June 2022

Façade Innovation – The Pathways & the Pitfalls – Presented by Tilt Industrial | 10:30 AM, 9th June 2022

An Introduction to Regenerative Architecture- Presented by Havwoods | 1:30 PM, 9th June 2022

For many architects, sustainability doesn’t go far enough because it only involves minimising negative environmental impacts. For them ‘Regenerative Architecture’ – which imagines a world in which negative impacts are eliminated and buildings become part of the environment – is the solution. This session explores this groundbreaking concept and explains why timber deserves to be included when discussing it. Learn more.

Structural Use of Hardwood Glulam and CLT Species – Applications and Case Studies – Presented by AHEC | 3:00 PM, 9th June 2022
