Frame Australia is the major national event for engineered timber and building pre-fabrication and is a forum for the complete supply chain of structural timber, engineered wood products and pre-fabricated frames. The 2014 Frame Australia Conference, held on May 19th in Melbourne, recorded the biggest attendance since its inception 16 years ago with a record of 400 attendees!
We noted at the conference an increased acceptance in Australia of European and North American concepts in prefabricated timber systems. The use of CNC machines, and the tolerances and accuracies required to implement such technologies will be a challenge in the Australian market but it is a direction that we support as we continue to develop the Fairweather Homes off site procurement methodology. Our movement towards further panelisation of our product will keep our product at the forefront of timber frames fabrication and on-site efficiencies.
The 2015 conference has already been announced for June 1 at the Park Hyatt in Melbourne. Keep advised of the speaker program details and any other information by visiting the Frame Australia website.
