Join us for an exclusive opportunity to experience certified sustainable forest management and forest products up close! The Building Designers Association of Australia invites its members and designers to join us on a chapter event – the Victorian Field Trip.

Date: May 23rd, 2023

Time: 7:00 am – 6:15 pm

Location: G.P.O. Box 191 Melbourne 3001

During the trip, you will witness sustainable forestry practices, responsible timber supply, and world-class manufacturing. You will visit VicForests native forest and hardwood plantation, as well as Australian Sustainable Hardwoods (ASH), Heyfield. You’ll be able to see firsthand how timber is sourced responsibly and learn about the sustainable practices that make it possible to produce world-class timber products.

The field trip includes minibus transport to all sites, catered lunch, morning and afternoon tea, and a detailed itinerary provided upon registration. And the best part? It’s absolutely FREE! But spots are limited!

This is an exclusive opportunity for architects, designers, and builders to see all facets of sustainable forestry at work and the future of the ultimate renewable building material.

By attending this field trip, you will gain valuable insights into how timber is the ultimate renewable material, and learn about Responsible Wood certification and how it helps improve the quality of forests and the livelihoods of those who depend on them.
