The popularity of mid-rise timber buildings is increasing. Having fully exposed structures has made a lot of sense at a certain height. However, we can only unlock the use of timber in high-rise buildings if it is combined with steel and concrete, considering fire, acoustics and structural performance. In this episode we're speaking with Nick Hewson, Product Development Manager at Viridi about:
- How light-frame can be utilized for mid-rise buildings
- What systems are most suitable for apartment and office buildings
- How we can combine materials to unlock new heights for timber
Presented by Adam Jones, an Australian engineer working in the industry, Timber Talks, gives you an informative and inspiring insight into the best design practices, latest innovations and interesting case studies from the world leading experts in timber design, specification and construction.
