  • Aesthetic appeal
  • Innovative products
  • Manufacturing efficiency and flexibility
  • Range of applications. For example, multiple cladding choices, the possibilities with timber are limited only by imagination.
  • Timber framed homes have little effect on the operation of wireless and transmitting equipment

Product Performance

  • Acoustic performance
  • Structural performance
  • Thermal performance

Timber framed homes offer superior strength through the use of versatile timber materials in the form of beams, stud frames, flooring or large timber cassettes or panels. This allows countless design advantages. Modern timber construction is the most commonly used construction method in Australia.

Building Advantages

  • Ease in fabrication and installation
  • Ease of future modifications / additions
  • Lightweight construction, is also a great option for building in hill areas or on plastic soils
