The ARC Advance Timber Hub’s demonstrated partner commitment to collaboration is very high, crucially, there is strong commitment to provide practical support and perspective from stakeholders across the full value chain. Timber processing is represented by innovators AKD, Hyne Group, Multinail, Peikko, Loggo and Simpon Strong-Tie; with the demand side covering construction (Megawall Australia, Lendlease Construction, Rubner), construction technology (Meta-Mate, CLT Toolbox), design (ARUP, AURECON, Lendlease Digital, Northrop, Robert Bird Group, TTW), architecture (BVN, Tzannes) and fire engineering (Bloom Fire Consulting, Hydrock Consulting, Semper).
Forestry and government stakeholder groups are included (NSW Department of Primary Industries & Queensland Department of Agriculture & Fisheries) along with groups dedicated to delivering regional and timber-system transitions (FWPA, EWPAA, Indufor, Timber Queensland, Responsible Wood).
This is strengthened by our Chief Investigators from 11 Australian Universities and our Partner Investigators from 5 International Universities / Research Institutes.
The majority of Partner Organisation involvement builds on already-established research relationships, with further success expected to strengthen these ongoing collaborations.
