Forum Wood Building Baltic 2023 is a FORUM HOLZBAU conference with an exhibition of selected companies related to timber construction, for the fourth time in the Baltic and for the first time in Lithuania. It aims to present the latest international developments in timber architecture, engineering, and technology to an audience of construction professionals including architects, engineers, contractors, housing organizations, planners, manufacturers, and urban designers.
FORUM HOLZBAU was established 25 years ago as platform of leading universities for knowledge and technology transfer in timber construction and achieves the goal through its pan-European program of conferences and exhibitions. In Lithuania FORUM HOLZBAU cooperates with the VILNIUS TECH UNIVERSITY.
The future with wood
Timber construction is gaining popularity for a wide range of building types and sizes. As a natural cellular material, it is strong and light, making it easy to transport and erect. It can also be machined to very high tolerances, making it ideal for prefabrication. Recent advances in computer-controlled manufacturing and stronger and larger engineered wood products mean that timber construction can now achieve shorter programme times often at a lower overall cost while providing a safer, cleaner and quieter environment on site. It is also our only renewable construction material and it locks away carbon dioxide for the life of the building. The Forum will be an opportunity for practitioners and scientists to meet and exchange experiences and learn from the best within the field.
