Working with dinosaurs

You’d expect R&D association Trada to be highly visible at Timber Expo and it is, sponsoring the show seminars and using its stand to host its own half hour seminars and interactive quizzes (can you get a non-interactive quiz?). Hopefully a question will reveal details of the dinosaur skeleton (above) recreated in timber by the back office staff on a team building awayday to Rhyl. Seriously though, it’s an important organisation for timber – don’t miss the Wood Awards it co-sponsors later this year.
