Timber Queensland CEO Mick Stephens says the industry body’s new eleven fact sheets have been designed to address environmental, sustainability, construction and maintenance topics, as well as the workplace and health benefits of timber.

“Responding to a knowledge gap between building professionals and those who are commissioning and signing off on projects, Queensland’s timber industry developed this ‘timber toolbox’ of quick facts and more detailed references for further reading,” says Stephens.

“The fact sheets include contemporary case studies demonstrating the innovative uses of timber and its cost-effectiveness as a renewable resource,” he says.

“They provide information on the environmental and low carbon benefits of timber, and associated interest and uptake in using engineered timber products in mid-rise and taller commercial construction.”

 The fact sheets are available for download from Timber Queensland’s website.
