Concrete and steel have a rising competitor warming up the built environment - mass timber. I speak to Nick Hewson who is a chartered structural engineer specialising in the field of mass timber construction and is currently the Head of Design for XLam.
Nick lends his expertise to discuss the environmental, health and structural benefits of building with timber.
I've also created a transcript of Nick's notes for your reference on my website. I hope you find this episode valuable.
[Audio Disclaimer: Nick and I recorded this remotely during a Melbourne COVID-19 lockdown so the audio quality is a little patchy but still very listenable. I hope you enjoy the episode]
