World’s First Hardwood Cross Laminated Timber is being Manufactured in Tasmania

The world’s first hardwood Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) has been officially launched by CLTP Tasmania and along with it their new brand CUSP Building Solutions. Cusp CLT is sourced from certified sustainable Tasmanian Plantation Oak (Eucalyptus Nitens), grown on the Island State of Tasmania, Australia. CUSP CLT uses a resource that is currently exported as woodchips, but CUSP has created a world-leading mass timber product for the Australian building industry. Cusp’s products have achieved certification from the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA).

In speaking about the product Cusp CEO Chris Skeels-Piggins said, “The result is building solutions at the leading edge, with impeccable sustainability credentials. We discover better ways to create strikingly beautiful, effortlessly useful buildings and spaces. We also understand what matters in the wider world and how we can make a positive contribution to its future.”
