In this week's episode, we are pleased to announce that membership to the International Association for Mass Timber Construction is now open. Join a growing legion of global mass timber construction professionals and supporters. Students are also welcome! New research on cross-laminated timber (CLT) walls could have far-reaching implications for New Zealand's quest to become carbon-neutral, as well as reducing earthquake risks. The Eric Tweedale Stadium designed by dwp | design worldwide and partnership Australia and Northrop Engineers has been announced as the winner of the Australian Timber Design Award 2021. DIALOG has filed for the patent of its Hybrid Timber Floor System (HTFS). Once approved, the system could lead to the introduction of mass timber structural solutions into the supertall tower category. Wood is also being championed as the future of building materials, namely in the form of innovative cross-laminated timber or CLT. Not only does using CLT lower the amount of CO2 that a building produces but, crucially, wood can capture carbon from the atmosphere. This means builders and designers can construct with ambitious CO2 reduction targets in mind.
