This week we presented a Timber Cladding CPD at The Lighthouse, GlasgowScotland's Centre for Design and Architecture. As part of a series of CPD’s which coincide with the Best Use of Timber Awards Exhibition 2015, our CPD focussed on the difficulties experienced with natural weathering due to certain design limitations.

We were joined by representatives from SiOO:X including professor Calum Hill, a Fellow of the Institute of Wood Science, who provided in-depth explanations of the effects of Sioo's Silicone Technology on Timber. Thanks to all who came along and participated.

Other CPD’s in this series included “Engineered wood products for Modern Methods of Construction”, presented by Stephen Stewart of James Jones and Sons LTD, and “Solid Wood Systems”, presented by Peter Wilson of Timber Design Initiatives LTD. This series of CPD’s were carried out for A&DS Material Considerations: A library of Sustainable Building Materials, in partnership with Wood for Good and Forestry Commission Scotland.

We would highly recommend a visit to The Lighthouse over the Easter weekend to catch The Best Use of Timber Awards Exhibition 2015, before it on ends 30th March 2016.
