#TDChallenge23 Judging & Awards Ceremony

Timber Development UK invite you to join them at the new Centre for Advanced Timber Technology at NMITE’s Skylon Campus, Hereford for the live finals of the 2023 interdisciplinary design challenge.

The Challenge:

Retrofit is essential; It’s not easy, it’s far more challenging than new-build, and it takes a team of knowledgeable caring professionals to accomplish schemes that work.

We need our future professionals to understand the complexity and embrace the constraints and challenges.
