Workshop #01 - Design and Construction with Dowel Laminated Timber
Time & Location
About the Event
The Mass Timber Academy is delighted to announce the first of its 2021 programme of design workshops focused on modern solid timber products and building systems.
This workshop is open to early career professionals (within 5 years of university graduation) with a discount for Mass Timber Academy members.
Environmental considerations have led many architects and structural engineers towards non-glued timber systems but knowledge of Dowel Laminated Timber (DLT) is not widespread amongst UK architects and structural engineers.
This online Workshop aims to address this deficiency by providing participants with in-depth understanding of Dowel Laminated Timber (DLT), exploring this technology from its historical beginnings to the modern method of construction (MMC) it represents today.
From detailed information and examination of national and international case study buildings together with interviews with DLT specialists, participants will obtain a comprehensive knowledge of the several commercially-manufactured variants that are currently available.
The detailed content of the five-week long workshop series directly delivers 12 hours of objective, structured Continuing Professional Education covering competencies within RIBA Core Curriculum topics #6 (sustainable architecture), #8 (Places, Planning and Communities) and #10 (Design Construction and Technology).
Uniquely in any Continuing Professional Education (CPE) programme, workshop participants will have the opportunity to engage in a mentored design exercise in which the information absorbed from the weekly sessions can be applied and tested. On successful conclusion of the Workshop, participants will receive a Mass Timber Academy certificate confirming their achievement of competency in this subject.
A brochure containing full details of the DLT Workshop programme, topics covered, case studies and speakers will be available on this website from 16th April 2021. Sign up for this to be emailed to you.
