Timber Expo will return to Birmingham NEC from 10-12 October 2017 to explore the latest developments across the industry as well as new products and innovations from around Europe, for all in the built environment.

Various providers and manufacturers will exhibit at the show, including the likes of: Schmid Schrauben Hainfield, Intumescent Systems, Orlimex, Vudlande Sawmill, and Gaujas Koks Ltd.TRADA will be collaborating with Timber Expo this year and will see the Timber Focus Theatre introduce speakers who will explore how the industry is using the boundaries on the use of wood, wood for good health, technical timber and how designers are working directly with fabricators.

Students from the Emergent Technologies and Design Programme at the Architectural Association are also developing an innovative timber installation, co-ordinated by TRADA and sponsored by Hanson Plywood.

The design is a development from an initial understanding of ‘tensegrity’ (floating compression) Timber expo at UKCW 1systems and departs from a pure tensegrity through a three-dimensional structure, where doubly-curved plywood members coexist in equilibrium. It was developed from research on plywood composite material systems, focused on the integration of doubly curved plywood forms and tensile cables.

The show has introduced a series of free CPDs bringing together leading authorities to deliver advice and guidance on up to date fire prevention, changes to legislation on safety, advice and guidance on construction product safety, your responsibilities in the construction process and protecting you and your employees.

Nathan Garnett, Event Director at Media 10, which runs the show, comments on the CPDs: “This is crucial in the current climate and only by coming together, through shared knowledge and learning, we will be able to tackle the issues surrounding building safety head on.”

UK Construction Week caters for the entire spectrum of the industry from builders, architects, innovators and consultants, and each show provides exhibitors with the opportunity to network alongside decision makers and purchasers while showcasing its services and product to thousands of visitors.
