Wood has a number of excellent attributes, and can be used in a range of different building applications. From domestic buildings to low-rise commercial, industrial, public, civic and farm structures, the potential of wood is enormous.
Timber structural materials include solid timber, such as sawn timber, round timber, and engineered products such as Glue-laminated timber (Glulam), and Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL), panel products and plywood. New timber structural materials are being developed in New Zealand and around the world through thorough research at institutes. The latest technologies include Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Post tensioned sheer walls, columns and beams.
