SESOC Seminar Christchurch – Detailed Engineered Timber Design

24 July 2024 12:45 pm 5:00 pm

SESOC Seminar – Detailed Engineered Timber Design:
1. Durability and Moisture Management
2. Realising Design Impacts on Build Costs

July 24, 2024 (Wednesday)

Novotel, Christchurch Cathedral Square

Registration 12:45 pm
The seminar starts at 1:00 pm
The Seminar finishes at 5:00 pm

Join Bjørn Stankowitz and Andy van Houtte when they present Detailed Engineered Timber Design – focusing on two topics:

  • Durability & moisture management
  • Realising design impact on building costs

The two topics in this seminar can influence the viability of a timber project and be vital for the immediate and long-term success of a timber building. This will be a great discussion as these topics are often considered after structural design of a building rather than in conjunction with the design process.

In February, Bjørn did an introductory presentation on moisture management which you can watch here. Bjørn will provide a thorough discussion about durability and moisture management at the seminar in July.

Also this seminar, Andy Van Houtte will cover the following topics below to help answer the question ‘What design decisions impact the cost of timber building the most?’

  • Design conundrums
  • Timber building systems cost comparison
  • Material and fixing capacity cost ratios
  • Connections and CNC costs
  • Labour/cranage/transport costs
  • Construction costs impacted by design
  • Supply chain overview
  • Cost of moisture ingress during construction

By incorporating these thorough processes, designers can not only safeguard structures but also deliver projects that meet developers’ needs for speed and efficiency.

This seminar is suitable for engineers at all experience levels.
