Modular Engineered Timber Building Solutions
The Sustainable Future of Global Construction
Engineered timber such as Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glued-Laminated Timber (GLT) is increasingly being used in a variety of applications, reducing overall construction time, expenditure, and environmental impact. Key benefits of using engineered timber include durability, strength, stability, seismic resilience, thermal performance, fire resistance, moisture management and vapour diffusion, and design flexibility.
Engineered timber is the construction material of choice for the low carbon economy. Not only does it displace the use of carbon-intensive concrete and steel (estimated to be responsible for 8% and 9% of global emissions respectively) but the carbon absorbed by sustainable forestry is then captured for as long as the building stands, rather than released through natural decomposition. Wooden cities become giant carbon sinks.
Modularity is the emerging construction method of choice globally. Compared to traditional construction methods, modular building projects can be completed 30-50% quicker, with up to 67% less energy required and on-site disruption and emissions reduced by 80%. With less waste and improved health and safety, NZFFP’s modular engineered timber building solutions are safer, more sustainable and more cost efficient.
