Timber Tech Connect
We're excited to announce a collaboration between TWIG, Fast + Epp, and CAWP. Together, we're hosting a series of dynamic events at Concept Lab, an innovative R&D space located within Fast + Epp's Vancouver headquarters.
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) in timber construction.
The inaugural event will take the form of an open house, featuring introductions from the teams at Concept Lab, CAWP, and TWIG. We'll share insights into the opportunities, programs, and services available to you. You'll have the opportunity to tour the facility, discover current projects at Concept Lab, and explore the ever-expanding library of timber-based components and materials. During this event, we're eager to hear from you about your endeavours and how we can assist you and your clients in realizing timber-based goals, ideas, and projects.
Our overarching goal with these events is to establish a consistent series that brings together experts from various fields. As the mass timber industry continues to grow, our mission is to support individuals and firms throughout the innovation process, equipping them with the knowledge needed to excel in wood-based construction. Additionally, we'll inspire you by showcasing timber projects from around the world, including those by local firms and manufacturers based right here in British Columbia.
Light food and drinks will be provided.Register
