CLICKdesign workshop

InnoRenew CoE, in collaboration with the University of Primorska, organized a technical workshop and roundtable discussion, “Predicting service life performance of timber structures: Durability and aesthetics”, within the framework of the CLICKdesign project on 17 June 2020.

This was a hybrid event linking a regular meeting with a teleconference. Several participants from Slovenia gathered in person at Škocjanski zatok, while participants from abroad joined though an online platform.

Participants learned how to understand and enable approaches for modelling service life performance of timber buildings. Timber service life and durability significantly influence a structure’s mechanical properties and aesthetical alterations, especially when exposed to the outer climate; therefore, architects, structural engineers, timber industry representatives and investors need to be well informed about specific issues related to these products’ service life and durability.

The event ended with an engaging roundtable discussion where interesting questions and issues were raised.

All presentations are available on the CLICKdesign project YouTube channel.
