Associate Professor on judging panel for national structural timber awards

Head of the Centre for Wood Science and Technology, Dan Ridley-Ellis, is on the judging panel for the 2018 Structural Timber Awards.

These awards - covering several categories including social housing, new products, and buildings for education and healthcare - reflect the impressive innovation and growth within the timber industry. They are a rich vein of stunning, inspirational architectural design and engineering excellence. Entries demonstrate the construction industry’s growing confidence in the use of engineered timber - which Edinburgh Napier University has been supporting through the work of the Institute for Sustainable Construction.

Dan says "The Structural Timber Awards is a great showcase for innovation in building with wood – both in architectural design and engineering excellence. For that reason I’m delighted to be on the judging panel."

The 2018 Structural Timber Awards will take place at the National Conference Centre, Birmingham on 10 October. Over 500 leaders and innovators from across the construction sector and the structural timber supply-chain will gather at the prestigious award ceremony to celebrate excellence across a variety of categories.

The submission deadline for entries is 31 May 2018 and the judging will take place in the first two weeks of June.
