#15 Using the Whole Tree for Future Timber-Based Construction – Scoping Study

This project aims to optimise parts of the Australian sawn timber processing sector, so it can adapt to changes in market demand and material characteristics in ways that align with the future timber-based construction. The project is a review and scoping exercise to find ways of using the whole tree more effectively, while adding value to the built environment. The aim is to propose avenues of research that will address timber supply and provide manufacturing and structural design solutions to build a more resilient industry.

Researchers on the project include: Dr Benoit Belleville, Dr Wen Li, Dr Alireza A. Chiniforush,
Prof Tuan Ngo, Prof Barbara Ozarska, Prof Rod Keenan, Mr Richard Nero & Mr Johannes Fehrmann.
