CPETC 2018 Conference


Distinction Hotel, Rotorua




6:00 PM


The Third Annual Changing Perceptions of Engineered Timber in Construction conference will showcase the use of engineered timber internationally as well as explore changes in timber use in New Zealand. The value of wood will be explored from different angles, including both emotive and economic responses to engineered timber buildings.

This conference will continue on from the previous two events in this series, exploring further the use of engineered timber in buildings both in New Zealand and around the globe.


In recent years, mass timber has grown in leaps and bounds internationally in the commercial building industry. To keep pace with these global advances many leading architects, engineers and wood manufacturers attended a one-day conference in Rotorua last year on changing perceptions in wood building. Internationally, and locally more and more building developers are capitalising on engineering timber components in new commercial buildings.

The 3rd Annual “Changing Perceptions of Engineered Timber Conference” organised by Innovatek will further demonstrate the advantages for developers and tenants of using more timber in commercial construction. More and more “mass timber” developments being engineered and delivered. To register for updates or learn more please contact us.
