The first residential construction made from Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) has been completed by Holz DC in NSW.
Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is a relatively new technology in Australia that has been used in Europe (where it originated from) for more than 40 years. It is the engineered wood of the future and has made the eco-friendly construction of entire buildings from timber a reality.
The highly anticipated Watermark Shellharbour residential development in Addison Street, Shellharbour Village – comprising six one and two-bedroom apartments in a boutique building – is constructed out of revolutionary CLT, setting new standards in the area for design quality and style.
The development boasts a unique architectural appearance thanks to its use of this new timber construction system, in which large timber panels are craned into place forming the overall structure of the building.
Holz DC, who provide developers and builders unrivalled access to a national collective of highly qualified independent CLT experts, worked with leading Australian construction company, Hyperbuild to deliver this on-time and under-budget project. The teams delivered the installation of 200 CLT panels by crane completed in just 15 days.
Holz DC’s Director Construction, Theo Pasialis says they have a proven track record in delivering CLT solutions for residential projects.
“We have been known to deliver a 15 per cent cost saving compared to traditional builds, with a further 20 per cent saving on construction time.” said Mr Pasialis.
“Holz DC is continually open to talking with builders and developers who are focused on delivering more efficient projects. Our aim is not to replace a builder’s or developer’s team of experts for a project, but rather to add value to them throughout the entire design and construction process by providing access to our pool of experts who are focused entirely on CLT. In that way, builders and developers can maximise their investment and use a revolutionary building material at the same time.” he added.
Watermark Shellharbour goes to auction with Ray White on 4 August 2018 on-site at 10.00am. More details can be found here: http://watermarkshellharbour.com.au/ .
