Jerry Tate, founder and director here at Tate+Co, will be joining a panel of experts to discuss ‘Navigating structural timber construction to address Net Zero’. Taking place at RIBA in London on 2 July, the event will be a mix of presentations, insights and discussion with some of the leading advocates in UK structural timber design.

Illustrated through past and current projects, the panel will showcase how structural timber construction plays a crucial role in achieving Net Zero goals.

Jerry will be joining Anthony Thistleton-Smith of Waugh Thistleton Architects, Alex de Rijke of dRMM, Rory Bergin of HTA Design, Jess Hrivnak, technical adviser from RIBA and sustainability consultant Christopher Gaze to discuss and share best practices on utilising timber as a sustainable building material.
