Our commitment to unlocking the full potential of timber in construction given our experience and growing enthusiasm for timber technology, led us to sponsor the WoodWorks South 2023 event in Christchurch / Ōtautahi last week.
At this event, we united with other experts in the industry to share insights and explore how to reduce embodied carbon in our buildings.
One key finding was that while mass timber construction techniques are advancing and becoming more prevalent, hybrid timber/steel/concrete solutions can be the most cost-effective and practical option. It was also noted that reducing carbon emissions is not solely dependent on construction materials; the entire life cycle of a building, including energy usage, plays a crucial role. These insights will become increasingly significant as the Government begins to implement emissions requirements for new buildings from 2026 to 2029.
Our team would like to extend a special thank you to Tane Pratt, our skilled Architect based in Wānaka, for representing us.
