Australia is currently experiencing a resurgence in the use of timber as an engineered product, from residential housing through to mid-rise construction. As a result, our understanding of the structural design process is expanding, and engineers are increasingly interested in the new technologie
Timber continues to be the preeminent material in residential design and construction because it is: natural, sustainable, easily workable, thermally efficient, when specified and finished correctly - durable and long-lasting, and because it is simply inspirationally beautiful!
In a new 30 sec video, Peter Maddison award-winning architect and host of Grand Designs Australia, introduces us to the benefits of Wood. The Ultimate Renewable™ for Planet Ark's Make it Wood program.
This seminar focused on the key design considerations for structural engineers - from concept to construction, and launched new timber engineering preliminary design software, TimberTech.
Timber has been used in many applications, ranging from residential housing to marine structures, and more recently mid-rise and multi-storey buildings.
Held on February 27th at Holmesglen TAFE, Chadstone, the site of the WoodSolutions Mid-rise demonstration model, this seminar focussed on principles of best practice Mid-rise Timber Construction to maximise productivity.
