Abstract

This thesis explores Australia’s potential to continue expanding its engineered timber and modern off-site construction industry through a comparative discussion of the Swedish and Australian timber based building sectors and their related industries. A new prefabricated engineered laminated timber structural wall system, using readily available skills, equipment and materials, and its application to a theoretical three storey residential building is provided as a case study.
