In this week's episode, Hyne Timber Group (Hyne Timber and XLam) is pleased to announce a partnership with UK-based James Jones & Sons Ltd (JJSL), bringing together a combined 320 years of family-owned sawmilling heritage to pursue growth opportunities. Incredible step forward for Australia and the mass timber construction sector. The Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) – which invests in behalf of the #Australian Government – has unveiled a $300 million program to encourage mass timber building across the building sector. Under the program, eligible projects will be able to access Commonwealth funded debt-finance of between $20 million and $75 million. An advanced modular hotel will be maximising the use of Whyalla produced steel, ensuring we are supporting local jobs and industry - other materials will need to be sourced elsewhere, such as the panelling of the hotel, which is cross-laminated timber (CLT) from plantation timber. The University of Newcastle’s Q Building has become the first building in regional NSW to achieve a 6 Star Green Star ‘Design and As Built’ certified rating. The construction of downtown Delafield's first mass timber building started Feb. 2 after years of delay, Hendricks Commercial Properties announced.
