WoodSolutions Series: Webinar Three

WoodSolutions Series: Webinar Three

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 three: Timber Durability and Specification. With Prof Jeff Morrell, Director, National Centre for Timber Durability & Design Life

Timber is commonly used in a wide range of external applications: structures (pavilions, gazebos, pergolas), cladding, decking, screening, stairs, boardwalks, jetties, fencing, retaining walls, and outdoor furniture (seats, benches, tables), among others.

Designing for long term durability is a key issue for maximising performance and minimising ongoing risks for timber products. Timber specifiers can achieve timber product performance that meet or exceed their clients’ needs and expectations, by carefully considering key factors that affect durability, including moisture management, termite control, and using either durable heartwood timbers or preservative treated timber where moisture exclusion is not possible.

This presentation by international preeminent authority, Prof Jeff Morrell, the head of Australia’s National Centre for Timber Durability & Design Life, will discuss these important external timber durability issues – timber structure, natural durability, weathering, fungal and insect attack, mould, tannin leaching, etc - particularly with reference to the key sections of the WoodSolutions Technical Design Guide No#5 Timber Service Life Design; one of the most popular and regularly downloaded WS tech guides.
