Build Better with Wood

A new annual conference focused on accelerating a low carbon transformation of our built environment using timber. On Wednesday 26 June 2024, disruptors and market leaders came together to discuss how we can create systemic change, usher in a net zero future and break down barriers to timber in construction.

From when we opened the doors of Hamilton House in London at 9.30am, until the networking drinks from 5pm, the UK Timber Design Conference hosted 200 delegates from right across the timber supply chain – including leading developers, local authorities, insurers, engineers, architects, contractors and more. Supported by Swedish Wood and Built by Nature, the conference has shown itself to be a must-attend event for anyone interested in designing or building with wood.
