A series of free WoodSolutions seminars will shortly be held to explore how mass timber systems are being used today in multi-residential, commercial and public building applications in Australia. The dates are:

- Melbourne - 30th May
- Canberra - 3th June
- Adelaide - 4th June
- Sydney - 12 June

The seminar highlight will be Kerry and Lindsay Clare of Clare Designs discussing design and construction aspects of the new Library at the Dock building. This CLT and glulam structure was built by Lend Lease around the corner from the overall winner of the 2014 Australian Timber Design Awards, Forté Apartments in Victoria Harbour. Like Forté, Library at the Dock is a standout example of Australian timber design.

Industry experts will also speak on innovative use of LVL, cross-laminated timber buildings, acoustic floor systems for commercial and multi-residential buildings and modern timber connectors. Product and service suppliers will be on hand to discuss the solutions they can provide.

Going Bush, Australia's top TV show about timber and the forest industry, will shortly be featuring winners from last year's Australian Timber Design Awards. Tune into the 7Two network on 15 February to watch Nick Duigan and Andrew Hart interview top designers and visit winning projects.

The Going Bush team first turn their attention to The Waratah Studio, the highly unusual winner of the 2013 Outdoor Standalone Structure Award—and winner of the top prize at the Chelsea Flower Show.

They then pay a visit to Bentleigh Secondary College Meditation and Indigenous Culture Centre, the winner of the 2013 People's Choice Award.

And the show ends with Forte, last year's overall winner, a world-class example of what can be achieved with engineered timber.

Don't miss this episode of Going Bush. It's a great showcase of modern timber design—and a demonstration of the sort of publicity available to winners of the Australian Timber Design Awards.
