The University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Woodknowledge Wales, and Barcud Housing Association have developed a unique partnership to form the Wales Timber Development Centre which will be located in Lampeter.

The purpose of this new centre is to focus on developing home-grown timber innovation in a time where trees and Welsh timber are a focal point for capturing, storing and reducing carbon emissions.

Our vision is to create a centre that will provide industry and academia with a leading facility to create, learn, invent and innovate with timber.

The centre’s work will include;

• Home Grown Timber Science  
• Prototyping, Testing and Evaluation of Welsh Timber based products  
• Embedding and Evaluation of Sensor Technology in Timber Buildings and Components  
• Digital Integration of Sensors and related technologies to enable independent and assisted living.
