Tasmanian Timber Industry Challenged

Associate Professor Greg Nolan from the University of Tasmania says there are big opportunities for prefabricated timber products for high rise buildings.

The professor highlighted that European and American builders were already using prefabricated timber products to build high rise structures and he challenged the Australian timber industry to rise to the occasion. He said the use of timber products reduced the need for steel and concrete, so savings in time and money are just some of the benefits.
