Session 1 - Designing With Urban Wood: A Practical Guide To Telling a Story While Saving The Planet 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. | Free | Breakfast included For architects, designers, landscape architects, contractors, and furniture makers
Incorporating “urban” wood into a design project can help set your client apart from the crowd by telling a unique story with ecological significance. At this event, learn more about what urban wood is, where to get it, how it can tell a powerful story for your client, and how to successfully spec it into your next indoor or outdoor design project. Watch firsthand how a tree goes from log to lumber with an on-site sawmill demonstration by the Kansas Forest Service.
Session 2 - Partnering For Efficiency: Creating an Effective Regional Urban Wood Supply System 10:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. | Free | Lunch included For local governments, sawyers, lumber distributors, conservation specialists and tree service companies.
Dwayne Sperber of Wudeward Urban Forest Products will discuss the advantages, critical components and challenges of creating an urban wood network using his own experience from helping to develop the Wisconsin Urban Wood Network. We'll take a closer look at how area municipalities currently process their urban wood, and breakout sessions will address what an effective local urban network might look like for Kansas City.
This event is worth 1.5 AIA HSW credits. ISA CEUs are pending.
