Join us and a panel of timber construction experts for a LIVE discussion on how building schools out of wood can improve the lives of children everywhere.
Quality new schools are needed all over the world, but building them quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively has become a big challenge.
Now, construction companies are using wooden materials like cross-laminated timber (CLT) to deliver projects that meet all of these requirements.
In this exclusive session we’ll talk to several wood building specialists about the benefits of choosing timber over traditional alternatives, from strength and versatility to boosting health and wellbeing.
We’ll discover how wooden schools are already on the rise in parts of Europe, with a focus on one case study project in Cambridge, UK, which shows what can be done. We’ll also explore what barriers are preventing this from becoming more widespread, and how to increase adoption.
Presented by The B1M in partnership with Stora Enso, the discussion will follow the release of The B1M’s short social media video “Why It’s Time to Build More Wooden Schools” on 26 April.
With expert insight and lessons that can be applied worldwide, this video and live discussion is a must-watch for anyone with an interest in how one of the most exciting modern methods of construction can be applied in this vital sector.
The panel will be hosted by The B1M's Fred Mills and feature expert insight from:
