This presentation summarized the key benefits of timber construction specific to office tenants in Australian markets, referencing the lessons and achievements of International House Sydney. An emphasis was placed on the environmental and human-comfort improvements of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT). The material has a far lower carbon footprint than other building materials, the production process produces zero waste, and it provides a warmer, cleaner, more natural environment for users.
