Timber Construction

Mass Timber

Entity view (Content)

Mass timber construction is becoming an increasingly popular construction method because of the multiple advantages it can bring.  Mass Timber is sustainable and reduces the carbon dioxide emissions in the building sector, cuts the waste and pollution during construction.  As mass timber elements are lightweight and prefabricated, much shorter project timelines and safer construction sites are possible, making it a very cost-effective construction method. 

However, historically, wooden constructions have offered poor acoustic isolation levels; particularly at lower frequencies where the lightweight wall and ceiling panels transmit low frequency noise very efficiently and make it challenging to comply with local building regulations.
