Our vision

“The construction of large numbers of innovative and sustainable commercial and industrial multi-storey and long-span timber buildings in Australia and New Zealand”

This will be achieved through:

  • The development of pre-fabricated “hollow” structural timber members, made from Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) and Glulam, and viable pre-stressed timber construction systems for frames, walls and floors.
  • Promotion and technology transfer of the systems developed to relevant sectors of the building and construction industry in New Zealand and Australia
  • Drivers for Change

    Deep-seated drivers for change in the way we design and construct buildings underpin the STIC vision. 
    Key drivers are created by:
    • Demand for sustainable buildings, renewable materials and reduced CO2 emissions
    • Desire for aesthetically appealing timber buildings that are fit-for-purpose and have highly competitive constructability attributes
    • Carbon neutrality in the building industry and wider economy
