Abstract: Timber buildings in the spotlight There is no doubt that timber buildings are currently in the spotlight. We have seen several high-profile projects completed, such as the 53 m tall, 18-storey Tallwood House at Brock Commons in Vancouver Canada, or the world’s first all-timber stadium for the appropriately named Forest Green Rovers. New Zealand is not immune from this new timber age. Sir Bob Jones’ plans to complete a multi-storey ‘ply-scraper’ in central Wellington, and even a timber stadium for Christchurch, have been proposed (well, mentioned at least).
