The short delivery time requirement for the Aveo Bella Vista building, completed in Norwest, Sydney in 2018 made it an ideal project for a CLT design, enabling Strongbuild to complete it 13 weeks earlier than with the concrete program.
The Our Lady of the Assumption School in North Strathfield utilises an existing three-storey concrete frame base built over 30 years ago. The extension includes 4 levels of CLT and glulam post and beam structure.
Located in the Norwest Business Park and developed by Mulpha Norwest, The Bond is a mixed use development currently in the tender design phase. The project consists of 7-storeys of mass timber glulam frame supporting Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) floor and roof panels, utilising an 8.4m x 8.4m grid.
Hines’ first initiative in Melbourne, this development represents an exciting sign of the times for timber construction. With two massive timber offices already built in the US and several more slated to start in the coming years, the Hines T3 strategy (Timber, Transit and Technology) replaces structural systems such as concrete and steel with prefabricated solid wood systems, to create best-in-class projects in a fast, clean, sustainable and aesthetically pleasing manner.
