Join Responsible Wood at the Timber Offsite Construction Conference and Exhibition
Running Tuesday, June 21st and Wednesday, June 22nd Responsible Wood will be a key feature at the upcoming Timber Offsite Construction conference and exhibition in Melbourne.
With a focus on timber construction, the conference is the only national event for design, manufacture, and construction of offsite and mass timber buildings.
Mass timber, otherwise known as engineered timber, includes Glue Laminated Timber (GLT), Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) provide high performance options for builders, architects, engineers, and developers for building projects.
And on hand to assist, Jason Ross will be representing Responsible Wood at the conference.
“The conference has a focus on timber construction, specifically off-site construction and mass timber,” Mr Ross said.
Sponsoring the first session of the conference, ‘Timber Design Influences,’ Responsible Wood will be joining exhibitors, partners and sponsors to educate delegates on the benefits of wood and will be using the platform to double down on the environmental and social credentials of forest certification.
Jason Ross explains:
“Wood is the ultimate renewable; our focus is to raise awareness of Responsible Wood and PEFC certification and promote pathways for use in the market place.”
“PEFC is the largest global forest certification scheme, with more than 300 million hectares of forest under certification and Responsible Wood manages the endorsed Australian Standard for Sustainable Forest Management so when timber claims PEFC or Responsible Wood certification specifiers and consumers can have trust that the timber is sourced from a sustainable forest.”
“The importance of forest certification cannot be understated, the PEFC and Responsible Wood certification schemes are the custodians ensuring that forests are protected for future and continued use.”
“PEFC and Responsible Wood provide environmental commitments for the long term management of our natural resource, it’s a commitment to responsible forestry that can carry generations” Mr Ross said.
“And when it comes to engineered timber, many of Australia’s largest projects have used engineered timbers that carry PEFC or Responsible Wood certification,” Mr Ross said.
