The path to the perfect timber building at For Arch Fair 2022

Technicians of the Timber Institute will once again lecture on the possibilities, certification and method of construction of wooden buildings at the 33rd International Building Fair For Arch, which will be held from 20 to 24 September 2022.

On Tuesday, 20 September at 1 p.m. Ing. Jiří Brich will give a lecture on How to control the quality of construction of wooden buildings? Construction is a process that can be set up as a system with operational deviations, as a set of rules for key areas or as a set of steps with a high degree of improvisation. How can the construction process be controlled and what to look for?

A Look at the Path to the Perfect Wooden Building will be presented on Wednesday, 21 September at 14.00 by Ing. Václav Motejzík. The technicians of the Timber Research Institute visit around 300 wooden buildings a year. They have already encountered many mistakes when diagnosing buildings and searching for “mysterious” causes of defects and failures. In their work, they have long tried to promote the quality of wooden buildings and to increase the knowledge of builders, installers, designers and investors.

Both lectures will take place in Entrance Hall II, Conference Centre, Hall 2.
