A co-operative tour in the lead-up to ANZAC Day 2013 is inviting around twenty Australian architects, engineers, project managers and other building professionals on a three-day trip to Christchurch to see first-hand the major role being played by timber buildings in the reconstruction of Christchurch.
The three-day tour (22–24 April) focuses on commercial buildings that are being contracted with the latest large-span timber technology such as post-tensioned moment frames and shear walls, composite timber, concrete floors and long-span roofs.
Organized by the Structural Timber Innovation Company in partnership with Wood Solutions, the trip is part of a research program by a consortium involving New Zealand’s Auckland University, Canterbury University (Christchurch) and Sydney’s UTS. The tour itself costs $200 not including travel and accommodation, which guests must arrange for themselves separately.
