One of Australia's largest residential timber buildings by volume

Phoenix Apartments consists of five and six storey apartment buildings. The structure utilises a lightweight timber wall frame system using high strength LVL studs which allow a stud wall building to reach greater heights than traditionally achieved using MGP10 residential stud walls.

The walls were prefabricated at Strongbuild's factory with plasterboard and wall insulation thereby allowing wall panels to simply be craned into place once arriving on site. Manufactured in Europe by timber giant Binderholz, the Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) floors were shipped to Australia for final processing in Strongbuild's factory.
