Innovative Timber High Rise Construction

Advancements in construction techniques and engineered timber products has the potential to revolutionise high-rise residential construction in Australia. Following from Norwegian expertise in cross laminated timber design, Australia is amounting an impressive number of successful timber structural solutions. With construction times reduced up to 30% whilst also minimising number of workers on site there are many advantages to this choice of construction material. Of course, care must be taken when considering the structure’s serviceable longevity as temperature and moisture content play an important role in the material’s mechanical properties.

This presentation will showcase some of the innovative timber high rise construction in which the Timber Development Association has been involved with whilst discussing potential future development plans and or implementation challenges.
