Keen to build more efficiently?

We're chatting with Thomas Kaestner, Construction Manager & DfMA Engineer from Offsite Design

Building with Prefabricated Timber Systems

This webinar is for builders and contractors keen to build more efficiently by using prefabricated timber components and systems to increase value and reduce risk. The webinar also shows a pathway into prefabrication for builders and what it takes to deliver on its promise of improved quality, time, and productivity.

Supporting a long term sustainable New Zealand construction industry, this seminar is directed at innovative and versatile construction companies and prefabricators who want to be part of the solution to the productivity crisis in the local construction industry.

The speakers from Offsite Design have European background in timber design, offsite manufacture and construction. They have worked in the timber prefabrication and construction industries of New Zealand and beyond for over a decade and are helping local companies to get into quality prefabrication processes and projects.

An easy to digest 15-minute presentation followed by a 25-minute opportunity to pose questions to our topic expert.

ADNZ, NZIQS and RAB CPD points are available to:

  • Registrants who watch the live webinar or
  • Absentee registrants who watch the replay within one week after the live webinar.
