HKUST Distinguished Civil and Environmental Engineering Workshop 2023
Climate Change and Zero Carbon Future: Challenges and Opportunities for the Next Generation of Timber and Hybrid Building Construction
Date: December 7-8, 2023
Location: HKUST Campus, Hong Kong
Registration Link: https://www.hkustimber.com
Rising temperature and ocean warming are providing fuels for hurricanes, typhoons, severe wildfires and other natural disasters. Reducing and managing disaster consequences has always been a challenge. To slow down the rate of climate change, we need to rethink the way we design, manufacture, and build. The use of TIMBER and other bio-based materials in building construction is now seen as a sustainable alternative!
This workshop aims to collate current research into the complex relationship between climate change, natural disasters, and building technology, exploring the challenges and opportunities for the next generation of timber and hybrid building construction.
