Smith and Wallwork’s challenging address to the audience of Solid Wood Solutions created a bit of a stir this week in Birmingham.

The inspiration for the talk came from a number of angles, the need for more critical appraisal and debate at conferences, a review of lean design principles and the elephant in the room…wood is expensive.

If the number of post-talk comments and discussions are anything to go by then we think we hit the nail on the head!
