CIAT Scotland East & Scotland West Regions & Mass Timber Academy CPD collaboration

A six-part online CPD course for members and affiliates, that highlights the design and construction potential of modern timber technologies, is available to book now.

Entitled The Mass Timber Revolution, the six-part course takes place at fortnightly intervals between Wednesday 19 April and Wednesday 28 June 2023. Each one-hour session, from 13:00-14:00, will address the manufacture, design, detailing, specification, and construction of a different solid laminate (mass) timber system, with time available afterwards for Q&As. Attendees will also have access to highly relevant bonus material.

The Scotland East and Scotland West Regions have collaborated with the Mass Timber Academy, the UK's only independent education provider to specialise in this fast-growing subject, to produce a bespoke, six-part course comprised of extensive information on each of the solid laminate timber systems in use today.

A message from CIAT Scotland East and CIAT Scotland West:

You've maybe used Glulam beams or columns in previous projects, but modern double-curving Glulam is a different creature altogether!

Modern methods of manufacture, robotic technology and parametric design have changed this 120 year-old product into an essential tool in advanced construction and have radically altered the way shapes and forms are conceived in architecture.

You can delve deeper into what is happening in the research, development, testing, manufacture and construction of the innovative glue laminated timber structures being built today by attending The Mass Timber Revolution online course provided by CIAT Scotland East and Scotland West in collaboration with the Mass Timber Academy.

With only three weeks to go before the first session of The Mass Timber Revolution online course begins, it's still not too late to book your place – act now!
