Prefabricated Lightweight Timber Floor Systems – Innovative Concept to Market Implementation
Wednesday 10th December 11 am – 12 noon, Presented by Alastair Woodard, TPC Solutions.
A new highly innovative and collaborative market implementation project to regain residential timber market share, using prefabricated cassette floor systems delivered by the frame and truss sector, has now been underway for 12 months. Excellent progress has been made in developing delivery systems, technical skills and capacity and a number of key projects have now been delivered clearly illustrating the benefits of the system.
A detailed cost study and value proposition of the system has also now been completed by an independent Quantity Surveyor clearly illustrating the cost competitive nature of the systems on different sites.
This presentation will highlight the activities and lessons learnt from the first technical market development phase, and outline the proposed activities over the next 12 months as the program moves into its final promotional market implementation phase.
