Join us at Futurebuild

Join us at Futurebuild 2023 at London ExCeL, stand N72, to chat about sustainability, design, net zero and more!

If there is one message that is coming loud and clear from the global climate emergency, it is that we cannot go on as we are. The industry has to make changes. We must radically change how we plan, design, construct and operate our buildings and places.

Futurebuild’s exhibition brings together the entire supply chain to showcase, debate and understand the advancements in sustainable construction and the emerging technologies that will make net zero possible.

We are proud at Timber Development UK to be taking a stand! Come say hello to our friendly team. Register here for Futurebuild.

TDUK Stand (N72)

Come and meet the team at our pop-up stand at Futurebuild, 7-9 March 2023, and find out about the future of timber in the UK.

TDUK’s team will be at Futurebuild to provide one-on-one chats with anybody interested in the use of timber in construction, design, and as a tool to build a better world. Teams members from our Sustainability Director to our Head of Technical and Trade Policy will be present.

Our Chief Executive Officer David Hopkins will be present Tuesday and Wednesday for those who want to talk to him about what we have been developing as the largest supply chain body for timber in the UK.

For centuries, the educational institutions of Britain provided fertile ground for architectural innovation. We are seeing more academic buildings incorporating sustainable features, not only to reduce the building’s environmental impact, but also to promote a healthy and productive learning environment.

The session will explore the Wood Awards 2022 Finalist Wintringham Primary Academy, by award-winning architects dRMM Studio, which prioritises the wellbeing and sustainability of the multi-use space, and Wood Awards 2022 Gold Award winners, Homerton College, Cambridge by architects Feilden Fowles.
