Fendalton Road Residence Is Under Construction
Sep 1, 2017
We are officially underway on our Fendalton Road project.
This project consists of 2 architecturally designed luxury homes by MAP Architects. The foundation system has been designed to be re-levellable if required.
A great feature of these homes are the cross-laminated timber floor panels by Xlam used on both the lower and first floor level. Using the panels on this project has been extremely efficient and gives us a complete floor structure in place in less than 1 day per house.
A little bit more about cross-laminated timber:
CLT (Cross-laminated timber) is a wood panel system typically consisting of 3-7 layers of timber laid and glued at right angles to one another to form a structural panel that has incredible strength, stability and rigidity. Panels can be used for floors, walls and roofs and outperforms conventional framed houses in air-tightness, thermal insulation, internal moisture management, acoustic insulation and fire resistance.
