The Wood Innovation Group

Greetings TWIG community. We just want to remind you of an event next week as part of our quarterly Timber Innovation Series created in partnership with Concept Lab and UBC CAWP. As part of a full week of activities surrounding Buildex and the GLOBE forum, we hope some of you can make it out and join us.

Timber Tech Connect

February 13th, 5:30 - 7:30
Concept Lab, 397 W 7th Avenue, Vancouver

Timber Tech Connect offers an up-close look at the latest innovations in timber design and the individuals driving progress in wood-based design, engineering, architecture, and construction. Through these events, our aim is to provide a platform for networking, learning, and exploring the possibilities of Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA), sustainability and low carbon construction, building systems and the overall methodologies of timber construction.

This event will feature a presentation from UBC's Dr. Haibo Feng - Assistant Professor in the Department of Wood Science, and some research presentations from students under Cristiano Loss. Alongside this we will hear updates from Brandon @ Concept Lab on some ideas for moment connected CLT panels that they have been working on with UNBC.

Dr. Haibos presentation will cover the following topics from his research.
  • Review of Vancouver embodied carbon guidelines and impacts to wood industry
  • The current status of LCA/EPD calculations in timber suppliers in Canada
  • The tall wood building design challenges and the research going on UBC sustainable built environment lab
  • Next step for zero carbon timber building designs
$20 - Food and drinks will be provided.
