The Future Timber Hub, funded by the Australian Research Council, is Australia's leading timber research collaboration bringing together experts from industry, government, and academia who are committed to the future development of tall timber buildings in the Pacific region. The Hub is an interdisciplinary partnership between the University of Queensland, the Queensland State Government Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Arup, Hyne Timber, Lendlease, the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES), Scion NZ, Griffith University, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Canterbury.

This seminar will provide an overview of three of the Research Hub’s projects from the School of Architecture and the School of Civil Engineering, including: Dr Joe Gattas (Digital Fabrication in Timber), Mr Kim Baber and Mr Harry Mills (The potential for underutilised timber for the built environment), and Dr Paola Leardini (Performance and Sustainability in Timber Construction). Followed by a panel discussion chaired by Mr Toby Hodsdon, an industry guest from Hub Partner, Arup.
