BUILD THE (IM)POSSIBLE: take on the challenge!


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, its first stop is in the heart of Iceland, later passing by Dublin and London.

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 insightful case studies and projects from Iceland.

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.

In the event that COVID-19 directly or indirectly affects the event and/or other meetings related to the seminar, Rotho Blaas SRL will promptly inform all participants of any changes in the schedule of the context (cancellations, modifications, delays). In such a case, the participants will be responsible for eventual own incurred costs, and will not be entitled to compensation from Rotho Blaas SRL.
