Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) features in NSW residential development
Australia’s premier Cross Laminated Timber (CLT)-tech company Holz DC, which provides developers and builders unrivalled access to a national collective of highly qualified independent CLT experts, has completed its installation of its first NSW residential construction made from the timber material.
The highly anticipated Watermark Shellharbour residential development in Addison Street, Shellharbour Village – comprising six one- and two-bedroom apartments in a boutique building – is constructed out of revolutionary CLT, setting new standards in the area for design quality and style.
The development boasts a unique architectural appearance thanks to its use of this new timber construction system, in which large timber panels are craned into place forming the overall structure of the building.
The Holz DC team worked with leading Australian construction company Hyperbuild to deliver this on-time and under-budget project, with the installation of the 200 CLT panels by crane completed in just 15 days.
Holz DC’s director construction, Theo Pasialis, says Holz DC’s experts have a proven track record in delivering successful CLT solutions to residential projects.
“We have been known to deliver a 15 percent cost saving compared to traditional builds, with a further 20 percent saving on construction time. Holz DC’s unique model sources and coordinates CLT experts from a national pool of best-in-class professionals and we are currently working on over 200 CLT dwellings in New South Wales and Victoria.”
Pasialis continues: “Holz DC is continually open to talking with builders and developers who are focused on delivering more efficient projects. Our aim is not to replace a builder’s or developer’s team of experts for a project, but rather to add value to them throughout the entire design and construction process by providing access to our pool of experts who are focused entirely on CLT.
“That way, builders and developers can maximise their investment and use a revolutionary building material at the same time,” Pasialis says.
Watermark Shellharbour will go to auction with Ray White on 4 August 2018 on-site at 10.00am. More details can be found here: watermarkshellharbour.com.au.
