Webinar: Responsible Wood

Responsible Wood chain of custody allows consumers to trace Tasmanian wood products back to their sustainable source; sustainability, the legality of timber and chain of custody are on the lips of all who work in the Tasmanian forest and timber industry. And for Tasmanians, Chain of Custody is a big deal.

Webinar: Tasmanian Oak – Classic & Prime Grades

Tasmanian Oak is the preferred hardwood for a wide range of applications; scantlings, panelling, flooring, glulam spans, veneers, plywood, furniture. Fibre for reconstituted board and the production of high-quality paper. It works extremely well and produces an excellent finish. It can be used in all forms of construction as scantlings, panelling and flooring, and can be glue-laminated to cover long spans. Veneers, plywood and engineered products are also available. It is also a popular furniture timber, and eucalypt fibre is sought after for reconstituted board and production of high-quality paper. Tasmanian Oak is light in colour, varying from straw to reddish brown with intermediate shades of cream to pink. It is recognised for its excellent staining qualities, which allow ready matching with other timbers, finishes or furnishings. Tasmanian Oak flooring is available in two aesthetic grades – Prime and Classic. Tasmanian Oak Classic is a high feature grade, visually enhanced by the natural characteristics of timber. Tasmanian Oak Prime provides minimal feature.

Sustainable Solutions Backed by Science (VAP)

“We want to make sure that what we’re specifying is sustainable. What sort of certifications do they have and how are they grown and where are they grown? That’s all so important. To understand the process now in Tasmania and to then also better understand the systems behind that and how it is being done in an environmentally responsible manner, that gives you a lot more comfort to then go ahead and specify the product and use it in your design.” — Rod Pindar (Partner), Fitzpatrick + Partners

Masterclass – Working with Tasmanian Timber

This seminar is designed for builders, joiners and those working with timber. It covers the species of Tasmanian timber available and their source of supply, major characteristics and product range. It will then discuss essential aspects of timber storage and handling practice for preparing and assembling major architectural and timber-rich components. As timber is a natural material, the wood moisture content (MC) and its management are critical to successful production and installation. Guidance will be provided on this and similar issues, suitable finishes, grade definitions and suppliers.

Masterclass – Tasmanian Timber for Internal Applications

This seminar is designed for architects, interior designers and anyone specifying timber. It covers the species of Tasmanian timber available and their source of supply, major characteristics and product range, before discussing essential detailing and specification practice for major architectural applications. As timber is a natural material, its slight movement in response to surrounding environmental conditions calls for clear design approaches. Guidance will be provided on this and similar issues, suitable finishes, grade definitions and suppliers.
