Ramboll engineer Jonathan Skinner, recently presented at the World Conference on Timber Engineering (WCTE). The conference is hosted biennially and is a platform for discussing the latest innovations in timber engineering and the promotion of forest products within the construction industry. This year the conference was hosted in Quebec City, Canada.
Aside from technical presentations, the conference provided the opportunity for participants to visit local timber structures, such as this public space at Laval University. Here cross-laminated timber panels (CLT) are combined with steel ties to form an efficient and striking walkway which joins the two parts of the University.
