2013 Australian Timber Design Awards winners   

The winners of the 2013 Australian Timber Design Awards were annpunced on September 19th.

The top prize went to Lend Lease for Melbourne's Forte at Victoria Harbour, the world's tallest modern timber apartment building.

Forte is a superlative example of what can be achieved using the latest generation of engineered timber products. The judging panel was particularly impressed by the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) in the building frame. They expect that Forte will serve as a demonstration to the Australian market of how this revolutionary technology permits the rapid constuction of strong, lightweight buildings.
