Gerard Jones, Managing Director of Chroma said: I can bring to mind two very prestigious 5*and 6* star hotel projects where we have worked with extremely talented designers at the outset who have worked meticulously to create the right environment. However, towards the end of the build it became increasingly more difficult to allocate the budget as was intended. This is very common with regard to the flooring within a project, as more often than not this is left until much further down the procurement process. Gerard added: Specifically we worked on a project where there was a desire to create a very high end luxurious specification of 100% mohair rugs. Mohair is one of the most expensive and luxurious yarns that you can work with when creating handmade carpets. The designer was naturally keen, as we were to deliver this finish to the client and when faced with budget limitations we looked to manufacturing innovation. Through our knowledge and expertise we were able to guide the design and manufacturing process to look towards a blend of natural and finely engineered yarns to achieve the exact same feel and aesthetic whilst meeting the revised costs.

Engineered Panels the Future of Timber Construction (2) (30/04)

engineered wood panel

$200 Million Waterfront Hotel Coming to Auckland As it prepares to host the Prefab Timber and Engineered Wood in Building Construction conference in Melbourne on May 19, Frame Australia says a trend toward increasing use of engineered timber products has taken hold in Europe and North America. The trend started in Australia with the construction of the 10-storey Forte apartment complex in Melbournes Docklands by Lend Lease last year. Frame Australia also notes that while pre-fabricated trusses and frames remain the most common timber building system, use of complete floor cassettes and panelised walls is growing. Australand, for example, is using prefabricated timber walls and roof, with complete cassette timber floors craned into place on each building level to build a five-storey apartment project in the inner Melbourne suburb of Parkville. Prefabricated wood panel systems are now becoming the preferred building material in residential construction, and in Australia we started to follow the trend last year with the construction of the all timber 10 storey Forte by developer Lend Lease in Melbournes Docklands, Frame Australia said in a statement.
