Looking up - Timber Framing in Apartment and Commercial Buildings

Presenter: Prof. Geoff Boughton, Director, TimberED Services

More multi-storey buildings are being designed for Perth and regional WA centres than ever before. Timber framed construction can provide a cost effective and elegant alternative for many buildings that are traditionally built from concrete or masonry.

Timber construction for these buildings has delivered cost effective and appealing buildings with faster construction times. Recent changes to the National Construction Code enable deemed-to-satisfy construction of three storey apartments and hotels, but taller timber buildings are possible using well-documented alternative solutions. Due to its high strength to weight ratio, timber is also suitable for buildings on poor or reclaimed foundation materials, and for lightweight additions to existing buildings. This presentation will outline the opportunities for multi-storey buildings using timber framing, achievement of fire and sound requirements, and resources available for designers and builders.
