Featured image for “New Event: 7 Mass Timber Industrial Buildings – Site Tour”

Date: 23 February 2023 | Location: Waipa industrial complex, Rotorua

This is your chance to explore 7 different industrial and warehouse building designs and visit 5 of the completed structures in one site visit.

Think industrial buildings must be made in steel and concrete to stack up? Think again!

Come to learn how glulam can be used for clear span structures of 105m x 45m. Visit New Zealand’s only CLT factory in a 166m x 64m glulam building with a single row of columns. Understand how portal beams/columns made of CLT will be used in the next Red Stag structure.

All projects will have case studies available for distribution to attendees. They will cover designs, details, professionals used, and comparative cost, weight and carbon comparisons between steel/concrete and the wooden solution.

You will also get to see the southern hemisphere’s largest sawmill in action as it processes a log every 5 seconds, and tour the CLT plant as it manufactures panels for projects nationwide this year.

All in one site, one visit and on one day only, 23 February 2023.
