Forum Legno Edilizia - Timber Construction Forum
TIMBER CONSTRUCTION IS CUTTING EDGE

PAV. 2 _ Forum Room

Italy has developed into one of the key markets for timber construction and it also takes a top spot in global comparison. Lightness, energy efficiency, resistance to earthquakes, comfort, sustainability and respect for nature are always at the centre wherever the valuable building material wood is used.

As part of the general programme of the Italian lead trade fair MADE expo for architecture, design and construction, the TIMBER CONSTRUCTION FORUM is organising an international conference, giving planners, builders, construction engineers, architects and woodcutters the opportunity to share their own experiences with internationally recognised experts.

The conference is split over 2 days: on the first day, national experts will address current questions of building physics and on the second day, leading international architects will give examples of state-of-the-art timber architecture (with simultaneous translation English <> Italian).

The TIMBER CONSTRUCTION FORUM is an international platform of universities and colleges, leading in timber construction, from Helsinki (Finland), Munich and Rosenheim (Germany), Biel/Bern (Switzerland), Vienna (Austria) and Prince George (Canada) that have made it their goal to deepen the timber construction culture and to promote the use of wood in the construction industry.

The TIMBER CONSTRUCTION FORUM collaborates in Italy closely with the University of Trento.

Training points are provided for architects, construction engineers and planners (CFP) 

 ATTENDANCE IS FREE
