This event is part of the Home-Grown Homes Project

Modern, well-made wood windows will typically out-perform plastic alternatives. Wood windows are commonly used in self-build projects, high-end private developments or in conservation areas. Woodknowledge Wales would like wooden windows to become the default choice for most housing projects in Wales.

This event is the second of three workshops as part of our 2018 Campaign for Wood Windows. The first workshop was successful in stimulating demand for wood windows amongst housing association and local authority clients. We are now working on a number of projects where wood windows have been specified.

This workshop seeks to explore and address the challenges for small joinery businesses to meet this emerging demand. The workshop will include a proposal for a simplified route to compliance with Secure by Design, the use of modified timber in windows and consider the use of Welsh timber.

Draft programme available  here.

Please book via Eventbrite.

This event is free for Knowledge Wales Members, £35 if you are not a member.
