One of our Chief Investigators of the Future Timber Hub (Dr Paola Leardini, School of Architecture, University of Queensland) was a panellist at the recent Brisbane Open House Event - Tall Timber Buildings & Taking on Climate Change. This event was open to the public and displayed 25 King Street, which is inspired by the environmental benefits and versatility of timber and showcases timber from roof to floor. The 9-storey plus ground superstructure utilises a combination of revolutionary engineered Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) and glulam (glue laminated timber). It is the tallest timber office building in Australia, if not the world.
