BUILD THE (IM)POSSIBLE: Relevez le défi !



Rothoschool is both a learning and networking opportunity that brings timber construction experts together. In 2020, as part of its North European cross country tour, it has started in Reykjavík, stopping in the heart of the UK and will finally dock in Dublin.


Timber technology specialists will be presenting sessions on the technical and structural details of connections, moisture control, sound insulation and fire design. Also, selected local experts will be presenting British insightful case studies and projects.


You can take advantage throughout the day to meet and discuss the topics with the speakers. There is also the opportunity to participate in the round table event at the end of the day and socialise with other delegates to create further business connections.
