Training cycle on timber in the built heritage

Gipuzkoa Provincial Council’s Historical-Artistic Heritage and ArchivesService, along with TECNALIA, has organised the training cycle on timber in the built heritage.

Given the importance of timber in the built heritage of Gipuzkoa, the Historic-Artistic Heritage Service has opted for training as a way of disseminating good practices associated with this material.

TECNALIA’s participation

  • In this first session of the cycle, our colleagues,  Josu Benito and Pablo González, Architects from TECNALIA's Construction Laboratory, will begin by analysing timber and its characteristics, as well as providing notions for the analysis and pre-calculation of structures.
