New timber design conference will help ‘accelerate a low-carbon future’

Timber Design Conference general

Timber Development UK is proud to announce our inaugural desgin conference focused on a low carbon transformation of the built environment using timber.


Taking place on 26 June 2024, the UK Timber Design Conference will bring together disruptors and market leaders to discuss how we can create systemic change, usher in a net zero future, and break down the barriers to timber in construction.

From the halls of Hamilton House in London, more than 200 delegates from right across the timber supply chain – including leading developers, local authorities, insurers, engineers, architects, contractors and more – will be inspiring a new wave of timber design.

Supported by Swedish Wood and Built by Nature, this conference will be the must-attend event of the summer for anyone interested in designing or building with wood.

Speakers already announced include the teams behind the incoming Phoenix in Lewes, set to be the UK’s largest timber development, Goldsmith Street, the Stirling Prize-winning council-led development in Norwich, and the pioneering Black & White building in London.

Discussion will centre on a diverse range of timber typologies and applications, from private to public, and residential to commercial. A range of exciting speakers will set out the opportunities in the UK for timber construction.

Timber Development UK chief executive David Hopkins said:

“Timber can play such an instrumental role in helping the UK level up and create a built environment which works in tandem, rather than opposition, with nature. This is already being demonstrated through some incredible projects, which will be on display at this conference.

“What we need to see now is a transformation which means these world-leading developments and buildings are the norm – not the exception. That timber construction is the go-to option, as we strive to meet our net zero targets.

“This conference will bring together agents of change who can accelerate this transformation. With tickets limited, we expect this conference will sell out fast – so we strongly recommend getting in quick.”
