Mid-Rise Wood Construction

Mid-Rise Wood Construction — Semi Permanent Aotearoa 2022

The New Zealand Government has an international commitment to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change.

The Mid-Rise Wood Construction partnership between the Ministry for Primary Industries and Red Stag supports that initiative.
The partnership aims to encourage the use of New Zealand produced engineered mass-timber materials - cross-laminated timber panels, glulam beams and posts, laminated veneer lumber - and prefabrication - as an alternative to steel and concrete in the construction of mid-rise buildings. The lowest carbon design option is to build sustainable, social and environmental structures with wood.
