CPD Webinex - Building Sustainably with Timber
If sustainably sourced, timber is undoubtedly one of the most environmentally-friendly building materials currently available, being a natural carbon sink and truly renewable.

With an overwhelming global shift towards environmentally-focused sustainable designs, more and more specifiers are turning towards timber as a building material for its sustainability, aesthetic qualities, ease of transport and speed of construction.

This presentation run by Weathertex clarifies the benefits for using sustainable products during construction, compares timber to other building materials as well as examining greenwashing and the various third party accreditations available within the building industry.

At the end of the presentation attendees will be able to;

• Examine the reasons & benefits for using sustainable construction products
• Learn how timber embodies energy and is the ultimate renewable resource
• Learn about the carbon cycle and the benefits of timber
• Compare how timber cladding rates against other materials
• CLT in Australia
• Examine various third party sustainability certificate organisations and under the concept of 'greenwashing'
• Learn the difference between EPD vs LCA
• Learn how Australia rates against the rest of the world

Business Development Manager - Architecture & Design VIC @Weathertex
My experience in the building industry covers more than 20 years, 15 of those specialising in lightweight materials, fire rated wall systems and general façade design. This work has been conducted as a Business Development Manager and Technical Sales Representative for companies within the industry. My expertise and knowledge in water proofing systems, render, paint, stains, anti-graffiti coatings and associated aluminium accessories has assisted me greatly in working with any number of facades types. I began my career with Weathertex in 2016 and have been working closely with architects along with building designers, interior designers, building certifiers, engineers, developers, builders (both commercial and residential), retailers, wholesalers and home owners. I enjoy doing CPDs and presenting to all segments within our market.
