Forum Wood Building Baltic 2021 is a FORUM HOLZBAU conference with an accompanying networking event of selected companies related to timber construction, for the second time in the Baltic and for the first time in Latvia. It aims to present the latest international developments in timber architecture, engineering and technology to an audience of construction professionals including architects, engineers, contractors, housing organizations, planners, manufacturers and urban designers.
FORUM HOLZBAU was established 25 years ago as platform of leading universities for knowledge and technology transfer in timber construction and achieves the goal through its pan-European program of conferences and exhibitions. In Latvia FORUM HOLZBAU cooperates with the Riga Technical University.
Pēteris Supe is a certified structural engineer at ZAZA TIMBER, a structural engineering company focusing on timber structures. He has Master’s degree in Civil Engineering and Transportation Engineering from Riga Technical University.
Before he started working at ZAZA TIMBER (formerly: Rodentia) he worked as a researcher in MNKC on guidelines for timber bridge design. Since 2016 he has been involved as structural engineer in various projects with mass timber structures such as industrial buildings, sports venues, open air stages, public buildings, and bridges with emphasis on buildings with spans larger that 20 meters and curved elements.
