The event will enable participants to understand how to successfully specify, detail and use timber rain screens and should be of benefit to clients, architects, specifiers, planning and building control officers as well as sawmills and timber suppliers.   Timber is increasingly being used as a high-performance rain screen.  It is a durable low carbon solution that can also be grown and processed in Wales.
