With just one month to go until this year’s Solid Wood Solutions, places are running out! Being held on September 16 2015 at the Inmarsat Conference Centre, London – packed full with industry pioneers – Solid Wood Solutions is a one day conference and exhibition that creates the ideal networking opportunity for construction professionals looking to create new connections in sustainable design and construction. If you are interested in finding out about record-breaking, engineered timber structures, as well as other innovative projects and products in the solid wood sector, then this is an event not to be missed.
After last year’s Solid Wood Solutions was declared a success by attendees and with structural timber buildings reaching new heights of up to 10 storey in the UK – this year’s Solid Wood Solutions could not be more relevant to today’s industry. Wood is making further advances and continues to push boundaries within the construction industry – clients, engineers and contractors are now realising the extent of where this strong, sustainable, structural material can be taken.
With sustainability and offsite construction high on the building agenda – Solid Wood Solutions is the essential event to hear first-hand from industry leaders and innovators. Wood may be one of the world’s oldest building materials, but it is now also one of the most advanced.
This one day conference and exhibition will showcase the very best in engineered timber by creating a platform for the industry’s innovators to present some of the most prestigious projects from across the UK and Europe.
As engineered timber is one of the fastest growing modern methods of construction, this event is designed to inspire through innovation.
Tickets are just £125 +vat
