bf7d8c63-efb4-4e41-a448-798ab6e1f5aa

The use of cross-laminated timber is expanding around the world, popularised by its many environmental benefits.

As mass timber becomes a mainstream construction method globally, how is it being adopted here in Australia?

Join us on Thursday, 1 April for three exclusive project case studies about Australian projects that are incorporating mass timber construction and paving the way for the future.

Each presentation will dive deep into the project life-cycle, covering all of the major considerations to developing and delivering hybrid timber projects.

Case Study #1

Monterey, Kangaroo Point

Monterey Kangaroo Point is the tallest residential timber tower in Australia. The project has replaced 1170sq m of concrete and blockwork construction with Australian timber.

Monterey will be 3744 tonnes of CO₂ better off, equivalent to removing more than 700 petrol-fulled cars from the road for a year.


Case Study #2

55 SOUTHBANK

The 55 Southbank building used Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) construction to create an extension of 10 levels on an existing 1989 commercial building. The use of concrete construction in the building would have limited that to just six levels.

The sequestered carbon of the timber is 4000 tonnes of CO2, equivalent to 130 homes annual carbon emission.


Case Study #3

Monash University Gillies Hall

Danielle Pacella
Associate
Jackson Clements Burrows

58a23d4d-6436-4926-be72-d597a3f39c4e


Gillies Hall student accommodation is on the Peninsula Campus of Monash University and has 150 student beds.

It is one of Australia’s largest cross laminated timber (CLT) buildings and achieves Passive House Certification (PHC).
