Integrated Timber Design Workshop

Integrated Timber Design Workshop

Two-Day Continuing Professional Development Course

The Future Timber Hub at The University of Queensland invites practicing engineers, architects and other building design professionals to join us for a 2-day continuing professional development course on integrated design of timber buildings, with focus on fire safety, durability and building physics.

Integrated design ensures that all design aspects are considered simultaneously at all design and construction stages. Failure to apply an integrated design approach can lead to delays, rework and redesign, and even failure of a project. This course will present the state-of-the-art knowledge on fire safety engineering including façade detailing, design for durability and how this is reflected in maintenance, and why air-tightness is equally important in Queensland as in Tasmania.

Upon completion of the course, the participant should be able to:

  • Understand the importance of an integrated design approach in timber design and construction
  • Adopt an informed and thoughtful approach to the consideration of fire in timber buildings
  • Make informed decisions with regards to detailing for durability and maintenance of timber structures
  • Identify options “beyond air-conditioning” when it comes to building physics and user comfort
  • Situate the current state of the art in the context of current research and development and future trends
