About us

Timber Design Initiatives Ltd was formed in 2015 to facilitate three things: the education of construction professionals in the use of timber and, in particular, mass timber systems and advanced timber technologies; second, to stimulate innovation in the use of timber in construction by working with companies to research, develop and bring to market new timber processes, products and systems; and third, the development of demonstration projects that utilise new timber products and systems. 

Our story

Headed by architect, author and critic Peter Wilson, Timber Design Initiatives Ltd was founded upon his two decades of R&D experience in all aspects of timber design and construction and his compelling urge to disseminate knowledge about advances in timber technology to the widest possible constituency of construction professionals. In line with the first of its objectives, Timber Design Initiatives Ltd has organised conferences, seminars, lectures and workshops throughout the UK for organisations such as Wood for Good. The creation of the Mass Timber Academy builds upon this experience to provide a new, distinctive and life-long approach to professional education.
