Members of the Centre for Future Timber Structures and UQ Fire visited the construction site of the Lendlease’s world’s largest timber office building, 25 King. Recently breaking ground floor, the use of exposed timber structure throughout the building was enabled by the true engineering understanding of the fire safety considerations in a building of this type.
Lendlease is a partner in the Centre for Future Timber Structure and the Future Timber Hub, Australia’s leading timber research collaborations committed to challenging the barrier of timber construction.
