General Responsibilities

Greg Nolan is an Associate Professor at the University of Tasmania's School of Architecture and Design, and is the Director of the University's Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood. Between 1978 & 1995 Greg completed his Bachelor of Science (Architecture), Bachelor of Architecture, Master of Architecture and became a Registered Architect. In addition to past and current design with timber, Greg is involved in efforts to gain the most from Australia's plantation resources. Since 1994 Greg has researched and published copious amounts of books, journal articles, and conference publications, all with a key focus in sustainable design, environmental aspects of construction and building performance, as well as the broader use of renewable materials in the built environment. Greg is an experienced research manager and has directed and conducted numerous industry funded works.

Development of an FWPA Research and Development Investment Plan for hardwood products: performance, yield and market opportunities (2015)$25,000
Description
This project involves stakeholder consultation, development and submission of a FWPA research and development investment plan with associated industry adoption and technology transfer strategy in support of hardwood products: their performance, yield and market opportunity. The review encompasses all current commercial hardwood species or classes as well as current and forecast market applications over the coming decade. Areas of focus include: log quality and characteristics; processing systems and performance; utilisation of by-products; market demands and drivers. The investment plan includes a critical evaluation of previous research in this area, an assessment of industry adoption and quantifiable benefits delivered from projects completed to date and a SWOT analysis of: industry and research provider capacities; current research underway; and future market opportunities. The final five year plan should prioritise future industry needs and indicative resource allocations (including by species and market) as well as map and identify proposed roles and responsibilities of individual companies, industry associations, research consortia and FWPA in delivering the stated objectives of the research program.

Sense-T Stage 2: Forest and Wood Products (2015 - 2016)$408,079
Description
The proposed project aligns with initiatives led by the National Centre for Future Forestry Industries (NCFFI -‐UTas) in the optimisation of extended forestry value chains. Specifically this project aims to improve the recovery, quality and value of sawn hardwoods by deploying advanced information sensing and modeling technology to air-‐dry sawn boards to Fibre Saturation Point (FSP). This is the critical stage in successful hardwood drying, and a vital segment of the broader forestry value chain. This is a three-‐stage project support by four activity streams. The three stages are 1). Intensive research into sensing, 2). Pilot industry scale sensing and operational trials, and 3). Industry operational trials. The four activity streams are a). Sensor system development that will determine the number and efficacy of sensors operating at a yard, stack and board scales, b).Drying condition model development that will align the information collected with the observed drying behaviour and the potential for whole-‐of-‐site timber management, c). Industry process integration that will ensure technical outcomes can be implemented given industrys current operational capacity, and d). Project 4 management.
