Structural Timber Association partners with Offsite Expo
Following the success of previous years’ partnerships, the Structural Timber Association (STA) is proud to once again be an Industry Partner with Offsite Expo, taking place on the 19th and 20th September at the Coventry Building Society Arena. Playing host to leading offsite manufacturers and suppliers over a two-day event, Offsite Expo is focused on supporting those that are driving change in the construction sector.
As the largest UK trade association within the structural timber sector, the STA will be exhibiting on stand F10 to highlight its mission to promote the use of structural timber in construction, as timber presents the best opportunity for meeting the UK’s net zero commitments by 2050. As such, the quality and standards of timber construction must be to the highest degree; making accreditation crucial to providing investors and insurers with evidence that companies are held to high standards.
At the event, the STA will explain how its STA Assure scheme provides solid reassurances to the construction community that members meet or exceed current legislation and regulatory requirements. Recognised by warranty providers, as well as other key stakeholders including insurers, STA Assure ensures that we remain on top of the constantly evolving changes to quality and standards. The team will also be there to discuss how structural timber systems andoffsite construction combined can support carbon neutral goals.
The Offsite Expo is also host to the Offsite Awards, which take place in the same venue on the 19h September; with the STA’s Andrew Orriss again on the judging panel. Additionally, the STA are also sponsoring the ‘Best Use of Timber Technology Award’ for this year’s event. The awards celebrate companies and projects that are at the forefront of the industry in terms of innovation and expertise.
Andrew Orriss, from the STA, said: “It’s always an honour to be part of this event and I’m very pleased to have been invited to return to the judging panel for the 2023 Offsite Awards. The standard of entries has been exceptionally high this year and it’s very encouraging to see the progress and achievements that are being made across the industry. Awards like this are an excellent way of ensuring this innovative thinking is recognised and replicated.”
Chief Executive of the STA, Andrew Carpenter, will also be at the Offsite Expo, leading a Q&A Session as part of the Masterclass seminar programme. Held in Seminar Theatre 1, at 10.30 am on the 19th September, Andrew will be on hand to answer any questions about integrating structural timber into offsite construction projects.
