WoodSolutions Series: Webinar One

WoodSolutions Series: Webinar One

Join us for this CPD webinar presented by National Supporting Corporate Partner, WoodSolutions Australia. 

AILA and WoodSolutions have teamed up to co-host a 5-part webinar series focusing specifically on landscape architects and their use and specification of wood products. Featuring industry expert speakers, we cover a range of key topics including timber as a resource and its positive carbon benefits in a zero-emissions future world. We also explore timber durability, timber preservation and external finishes, the use of wood in bushfire prone areas, as well as case studies of some of AILA member’s flagship landscape architectural projects.

Webinar one: Webinar Overview + Forests, Plantations, Wood Products & Aust Carbon Balance. With Dr Alastair Woodard – WoodSolutions, Dr Fabiano Ximenes – Senior Research Scientist, NSW Dept. of Primary Industries

In this first webinar, Dr Alastair Woodard from WoodSolutions, will kick-off things off with a synopsis of the webinar series and what you can expect each week with a summary of the key issues for using timber in the external environment, and an overview of the relevant WoodSolutions resources that assist building professionals in the proper specification of timber products.

To set the scene regarding our forests, the wood products available today, and their collective benefit as globally we strive for a zero-carbon future, we are very fortunate to have present, Dr Fabiano Ximenes, Senior Research Scientist with the NSW Dept of Primary Industries, and a world-renowned expert on wood and carbon. This presentation will discuss both plantation and native forestry, wood and its carbon cycle and how this can assist with climate mitigation, the carbon impact of fire, the carbon footprint and carbon storage benefits of wood products, and what happens to this carbon at end-of-life. The life cycle impact of different products is today, a major design criterion for voluntary green-building schemes and may soon become a regulatory requirement. Building professionals today need to understand and appreciate the opportunities of biogenic materials such as wood.
