Wood is back in fashion, with recent reports celebrating timber as the fastest paced sector in the UK housebuilding market. But with fashion comes expectations of innovation, cutting-edge technology and variety – something visitors to this year’s Timber Expo can gain full and exclusive access to.
As part of UK Construction Week, the UK’s premier built environment event, Timber Expo, supported by TRADA, showcases the largest collection of timber brands, knowledge and products, alongside invaluable seminars, workshops and networking opportunities at Birmingham’s NEC between 9 – 11 October.
Exhibitors will discuss their latest products including: ASBP member STEICO’s I-joist wall studs; Hanson Plywood’s specialist panels that suit dry, humid and exterior use; and Rothoblaas who provide the systems, fixings and equipment necessary for making timber a success in all build projects. Other exhibitors include: Ambrovit S.P.A, Capital Holz100, Glennon Brothers, and SIGA 1966 UK.
Timber Expo consists of three days brimming with the latest products, innovations and developments across the global timber sector.
“The show covers a wide range of timber applications across timber cladding, stairs, doors and windows, mouldings, skirtings and flooring. There’s not a more comprehensive representation of the timber industry in the UK.”
Nathan Garnett, UKCW event director
TRADA will be offering independent advice, connections, and information on Site Check: The timber frame pocket book. TRADA will also be supporting the Timber Focus Theatre where visitors can learn about:
- How tall we can build in wood;
- How specifiers research and source timber products; and
- Private residences made beautiful by using wood.
