Timber stone composites – a new way of achieving net zero carbon?/
Date:16 June, 2022
Organiser:Webb Yates Engineer
Stone and timber are not unusual materials to find on a construction site by any measure, in fact people respond well to them as natural and innocuous materials that can be seen in buildings of all ages. As we move towards a low carbon future we are exploring ways to combine these materials to create a new composite that leverages the benefits of both.
Brought together by our desire to build a sustainable future, our guest speakers will welcome an open conversation about the long-term benefits of combining timber and stone and what this means for the construction industry on a larger scale, and question how we as architects, engineers and academics can work with and not against our environment.
Join us to explore these ideas, and to see timber stone composites in action, in an event the Flintstones would have approved of!
