After a few days of everyone getting back in the saddle, 2018 is starting out strong and in January alone, we have six lunch & learn sessions either booked or already delivered. This month we will be holding sessions with Openspace Architecture, Michael Green Architecture, Stantec, Burrows Huggins Architects, Evans Architecture and Integra Architecture. Industry firms that will be participating in the lunch and learn sessions include Scottywood, Daizen Joinery, Kettle River Timberworks, Fire Retardant Coatings Canada and Structurlam Products.
We are also in the process of organizing a conference at UBC scheduled for March 1st. More information on this event will be covered in our next Connections as details will be finalized by then.
Next month yours truly will be playing host to a PechaKucha program at Buildex. The title of the program is “Iconic Wood Projects”. Speakers will include 2 architects and an engineer. It is scheduled for 9:00 AM on February 14th (the first day of Buildex) and lasts for an hour. Details can be found here. I hope many of those who are reading this article and plan to attend Buildex will be able to join us. This is my first attempt at hosting a PechaKucha program so I would welcome your support. I think it will be a fun and informative hour.
