Abstract

This paper focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to the development of a mass-timber structural system grounded in forestry, timber production, and architectural fabrication in Tasmania, Australia. The focus of this study considers optimising nail-laminated timber-concrete composite floor panels fabricated from an unthinned and unpruned plantation of Eucalyptus globulus Labill. (southern blue gum). The consideration and opportunities for this multi-disciplinary project is presented from forestry supply and quality to product design and engineering for architectural applications. The process formed a multi-disciplinary platform for analysis across forestry, engineering, and architecture. This research begins at discrete structural testing of the nail-laminated timber-concrete system which can inform future forestry practices to supply the market with a resource that can be processed, engineered, designed and prefabricated for contemporary architecture in the built environment.
