Christophe Sigrist is a professor of Timber Design and Steel Design at the Bern University of Applied Sciences, a member of numerous code technical committees in Europe and a Director of ongoing research work, undergraduate and post graduate projects on cutting edge Timber Design. New technologies in design software and robotics are unlocking opportunities for complex structures, previously unavailable to building professionals of the past. In this episode we discuss:
Building professionals globally are turning to timber in mid-rise construction as it provides a healthier, environmentally friendly (carbon), sustainable, efficiently off-site prefabricated solution that dramatically reduces construction times and accordingly the overall cost of the project.
