Illawarra-based construction company Hyperbuild continues to drive innovation in the local building industry and Australia-wide, with construction of the first ever triplex construction in Australia made entirely from revolutionary Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) underway in Ocean Beach Drive, Shellharbour in New South Wales.
Hyperbuild is installing more than 350 CLT panels weighing over 80 tonnes for this triplex construction which commenced in late January and will take just 20 days, with the final CLT element lifted and installed by mid-February.
The first CLT triplex adds to the rapidly expanding Hyperbuild portfolio of Australian-first CLT residential construction projects in the Illawarra, including the recent development of the first ever duplex in Pur Pur Avenue, Lake Illawarra.
The first ever triplex will consist of three contemporary Australian designed 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom town homes, each with their own private courtyards. The development employs the latest in European building and construction technologies, providing its residents with superior thermal and structural efficiencies, excellent energy ratings and outstanding living comfort.
CLT is a new timber construction system in which large timber panels are craned into place forming the overall structure of the building. Multiple layers of wood are glued together at right angles under extreme pressure to create giant panels to be used as flooring, load bearing walls and ceilings.
Hyperbuild Managing Director, Theo Pasialis, says he’s focused on bringing new contemporary designs and concepts in residential living to fast-growing areas in the Illawarra, which in turn drives the local economy with job creation.
“The exclusive design of the triplex adopts a spacious three-bedroom home perfect for a growing family or couple. Each home has a double garage and private internal courtyard. Plus, the triplex design will look visually unique thanks to the use of CLT.”
“Our triplex development will use the latest building technologies, sustainable practices and finest materials which boasts operational energy efficiency, a pleasant and stable living climate, fire and chemical resistance, and excellent thermal insulation properties.”
