Traditional wood joinery techniques were successfully employed for hundreds of years in the construction of tall timber structures. Thanks to a resurgence in mass timber construction and a proliferation of computer-numerically controlled (CNC) fabrication machinery, these integral joints are again an economical and performative way to construct timber buildings.

Designed properly, integral joints introduce numerous structural and constructability benefits. These include greater control over part tolerances and mechanical behaviours; self-aligning and self-locking features for faster assembly; and reduced part production cost through optimisation of material use and CNC fabrication time.

Such benefits can only be realised with a high degree of coordination between designer, fabricator, and builder. This course will allow participants to develop the skills required to achieve such coordination and deliver cutting-edge, digitally-integrated timber buildings.
