In June, Metsä Wood in association with the Institute of Structural Engineers, put on a full day seminar about Eurocode 5 for complex timber structures. We invited along some excellent guest speakers including Richard Harris FICE FIStructeE FIMMM from the University of Bath and Julian Marcroft of Marcroft Timber Consultancy who spoke along with experts from Metsä Wood.
The seminar is now available to view in bitesize videos on Metsä Wood’s learning portal, Timber Academy. The videos available include:
