Timber is a renewable material that is both beautiful and durable. It is specified for a broad range of
design applications throughout Australia and overseas. Light and versatile, it is used in interior and
exterior applications including framing, roofing, lining, cladding, flooring, fit out and joinery for all
building types. It can be used in its original shape, rough sawn or hewn to size, dressed to a smooth
finish, machined into a variety of shapes or sliced into sheets of veneer. Timber can be machined to
realise patterns, filigrees and geometrically complex forms.


Different species possess different basic properties and, therefore, provide a natural variety of
aesthetic and structural options. Wood can be transformed into manufactured, reassembled
products, including glue-laminated timber, particleboard, plywood and laminated veneer lumber. Each
engineered product has its own structural and aesthetic properties and qualities in building.
