How-to training event on the techniques of high-performance closed panel timber frame and injection of natural insulation
Timber frame construction is evolving fast. Ever increasing energy performance standards are driving rapid innovation in how we conceive and deliver timber frame construction. This is exemplified by a shift from open panel to the more exacting requirements of the thermally broken closed panel construction method. Furthermore, ecological, health and resource considerations are accelerating the shift away from petrochemical products to more natural and resource efficient solutions. This ‘how-to’ training event will introduce participants to the techniques of high-performance closed panel timber frame, manufactured to meet the demanding Passivhaus standard and will include the injection of natural insulation.

Audience: Housing development professionals, architects, contractors, timber frame manufacturers, students

Speakers: James Moxey (Woodknowledge Wales), Jasper Meade (PYC)

Format: Blended event offering in person and online participation (via Zoom).

This event is part of Trawsnewid Menter Pren | Transforming Timber Enterprise – an event series providing inspiration, knowledge and skills for a zero-carbon built environment.

The transformation to zero carbon creates new and exciting opportunities for both business and skills development. Our aim in this series of expert led events is to inspire organisations in general and young people in particular to better understand and embrace the opportunities presented by the rapid transformation to a zero-carbon built environment. These ‘how-to’ events cover essential aspects of both new build and retrofit, and major on the better understanding of the use of timber products and the forests from which they are produced.
