Our CPD presentation is for architects, designers, landscape architects and those who work in landscape construction who love the feel, warmth and aesthetics of timber in your designs.

Porta’s ‘Designing with Sustainable Timber – External’ CPD presentation is designed to help you understand the key factors required to ensure timber used in your designs and specifications is responsibly sourced and designed in such a way to ensure it will last for years to come, as well as achieving sustainable building design criteria.
