What’s the knock on wood?

Engineered timber is a renewable building material offering multiple environmental, architectural and program benefits. The material is starting to be seen as an alternative building material compared to the more traditional material such as concrete, steel and masonry

Due to greater awareness and availability of some Australian made products that can assist with timber construction within buildings, there is an emergence of this product used in construction in Australia today.

In our new paper, Slattery explores the key considerations for a wholly timber construction project and the steps universities can put in place to mitigate perceived risks.

We examine recent Australian and international leading examples to determine the considerations and benefits including cost saving and sustainability.
