Timber Framed Construction for High Density Projects by TECBUILD

Timber Futures - the multi storey opportunities

In recent years, the building design and construction industry in many developed economies has witnessed an increased interest in the use of timber framed (TF) construction for low to mid-rise development projects.

The use of timber has been facilitated and in some cases led by changes to building regulations and further supported by supply chain and technological innovations. This is evident from Finland and Sweden, to the UK and to Canada and the USA and now to Australia.

In Australia, prominent developments such as Lend Lease's Forte building and Australand's The Green apartments have grabbed the headlines. The substantial corporate investment in TF construction technology made by these top tier developers clearly heralds a future crop of timber-designed projects. For some developers and builders who never think beyond a concrete frame for the structure of anything over two storeys, the use of timber is somewhat mystifying. Some cynical industry players explain the innovation away as just a marketing gimmick to capture 'green' buyers.

Whilst TF construction has undeniably superior environmental credentials over concrete, a marketing benefit alone would not justify the commitment these major companies have made to establish new timber-based supply chains, trade suppliers and project management processes.
