George Barnsdale is delighted to be launching the next in its series of CPDs – Forest to Factory -the evolution and revolution of timber fenestration starting on 29th April at 1pm by webinar. The CPD takes an in-depth look at timber from seed to window and beyond and helps explain why windows from Victorian times have outlasted many made in the 90s and 2000s.

It also explains:

  • how to select the right timber from the right sources
  • modern methods of treatment
  • correct storage and engineering
  • discover why heartwood beats sapwood
  • how softwood can last as long as hardwood
  • how different design and manufacturing methods impact on longevity
  • why timber lasts twice as long as plastic
  • what makes it so eco-friendly
  • and lots more…

Any architects, specifiers or other building/construction project teams wishing to sign up to the first webinar on 29th April can do so here. Those unable to attend can request a socially distanced one-to-one or remote presentation with one of our team by emailing us here.
