designTimber webinar series launches to showcase timber innovation

After the success of the first series of designTimber in 2022, Timber Development UK are pleased to announce a second edition.

Timber Development UK will host a series of webinars, beginning in March, about timber buildings and furniture – as selected from the 2022 Wood Awards winners and shortlist. The lunchtime talks will be presented by the architects, structural engineers and other specialists from the multidisciplinary teams behind the projects.

Spanning innovations in modular construction, transformative renovation and use of locally grown timber, the online series will highlight some of the most accomplished and sustainable examples of timber design and construction in the UK.

The series will begin on Wednesday 1 March with a presentation of Homerton College Dining Hall, which won the Gold, Structural and Education & Public Sector Awards in last year’s Wood Awards.
