Timber is making a major comeback with developers and builders embracing the centuries old building material.
In a recent post the convenience of timber construction was discussed citing a Campbelltown site where 4 apartment towers are being built with almost the only noise you can hear coming from another site nearby.
With conventional steel and concrete construction there is more noise where as the only sound you hear with timber buildings are the thuds of the panels being put into place.
As one developer put it, timber is ideal for taking projects higher, literally. These are not using conventional wooden panels but manufactured, engineered materials collectively known as mass timber.
One example is cross-laminated timber (CLT) — layers of wood, glued together under high pressure with the grain of each perpendicular to the one before making for a strong and durable product.
