Forté Wins 2013 Australian Timber Design Awards

20th September 2013
Key Information

Forté was nominated for the following categories:

  • Southern Region - Winner
  • Multi Residential - Winner

We are proud to announce that Forté has won the 2013 Australian Timber Design Award.

Forté is a superlative example of what can be achieved using the latest generation of engineered timber products. The judging panel was particularly impressed by the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) in the building frame. They expect that Forté will serve as a demonstration to the Australian market of how this revolutionary technology permits the rapid constuction of strong, lightweight buildings that may be both tall and wide.

Winners were announced on 19 September at Zinc, Federation Square, Melbourne. Many well-known individuals from government, the timber industry, and the design community were on hand to enjoy what has become the premier event in the Australian timber-design calendar.
