Long-span Low-Carbon Floor Systems (Scoping Study)

The last two decades have seen mass timber emerge as a viable, desirable, and sustainable construction material for both commercial and large-scale residential developments.

This scoping study lays the groundwork for developing a low carbon, suspended floor system capable of spanning 8m or more, and satisfying a range of additional criteria necessary for large-scale application in multi-storey mass timber projects.

Existing product solutions in this field tend to be isolated, project-specific, and detached of market and customer requirements. This scoping study will survey and benchmark the systems available on the market, with the aim of delivering a detailed design brief for future development.
