David will take you through:
- the results of recent BRANZ research into the appetite for using EWP's in building, the perceptions that exist about them and potential barriers.
- the range of resources available in New Zealand to help make decisions regarding the use and performance of EWP's.
- research projects at BRANZ that show how to use EWP's, what the implications of their use might be and how to effectively incorporate them into building projects.
We've asked the important questions: Are there barriers to incorporating innovative engineered wood products within buildings? Are there ways of increasing the uptake of timber-based building materials while still ensuring that all New Zealand Building Code requirements are met? Come and find out the answers.
