Let's have a look at what's making news around the world this week in mass timber construction land. I need your help. I now require people who want to participate in a research study that helps me explore the built environment and how we build it. In a more research project which looks at everyone's perspectives on the global mass timber construction market. I'm looking specifically at carbon reduction strategies, market drivers, especially focusing on imperative shifts towards low carbon practices in the construction sector from a socio-economic, environmental and housing markets perspective. There's three parts to the research. You can do the online international survey so anyone in the world can participate in that, and then there are interviews and focus groups available for people only as residents in Australia. If you'd like to participate in this particular research proposal and project, you can head to the Mass Timber Construction Journal LinkedIn feed and look for the details there. And the team at Next Timber, which is part of Timberlink, have just announced that the South Australian government has committed to sourcing its mass timber from the next timber plant. Details of the media release from Timberlink are available on our social media feed. So head to our LinkedIn and you'll be able to see the media release.

And we feature a project which is a timber house, or lint wood house, in Berlin's Schoenberg district. It is a creative living concept which is in the metropolitan location, featuring lifestyles for the future as a key theme. The new multi-story apartment block is located in the busy southwest of the city. It is created as part of an urban development project. The area known as Schoenberg is described as a neighborhood between the railway station and the commuter train area, in an urban quarter that is slated to rise in the area by 2025. So if you'd like to go and see some interesting photos of these mass timber buildings in the middle of Berlin head to our LinkedIn feed.

We've always maintained that insurance and the banking industry will be a great contributor to the advancement in mass timber construction, and that is no more true than it is in British Columbia with the insurance corporation of British Columbia, the ICBC corporate head office, about to move into and relocate to the corporate hub of the Hive at 2050 Keith Drive, which is located immediately adjacent the VCC Clark Station on Skyrail's Millenia Line, which is currently under construction at the intersection of 6th Heath and Keith Drive. The Hive is a 10-story mass timber office building and the team at Wood Central are reporting that Under Armour has a date for the move-in to their first wave of the corporate office that will be at Tide Point and Locust Point for a purpose-built facility which is five-story, being nearly complete, a mass timber design that has allowed the crews to reduce the bottlenecks that are delivered in traditional project and produce at a rapid pace. The 26,000 square meter building is made up of CLT and it is spearhead by the architectural firm Gensler, and JJ Rivers, who's a principal and director of Gensler, spoke to the Wood Central team, so if you'd like to go and see some more amazing images on the Teammate Building 2 building, which is setting new net zero targets by reducing embodied and operational energy and carbon, and you can see the design on our linkedin feed. Or head to wood central and read the article. And after three years of constructing and 30 000 square foot residence hall, the 46-bed eco-friendly building called Collins House was designed by Opal Architecture of Belfast and the mass timber structure was installed by the affiliated company Opal Bill. The structure is blown in wood fiber insulation from the main company in timber, hp, which sources small diameter pulp trees, residual chips and the state produces rigid insulation. And the mass timber building has these infill walls collins. House sequestered biogenic carbon is expected to perform to passive house energy standards.
