Architectus picks up four Timber Design Awards

Incubator recognised in Australia Timber Design Awards

The Macquarie University Incubator picked up four awards at the 2017 Australian Timber Design Awards announced in Melbourne last night. The incubator was recognised for Excellence in the use of Timber Design – Innovative Structural Design, and Excellence in the use of Timber Products including Timber Panels, Timber Windows and Doors, and Engineered Timber.

Architectus picks up four Timber Design Awards

Timber was selected as the main construction material for its capacity to be beautifully engineered and swiftly fabricated to a high quality. The majority of components were prefabricated offsite to ensure rapid construction and minimal disruption to the concurrent university semester.

The resulting building was completed within five months of construction commencing, and despite flexibility and relocation being a strong factor of the original design brief, the incubator has become so well-loved that it’s likely it will remain permanently in its current location.

The awards are great recognition for the university and the project team.
