Theme 2: Product and manufacturing
Theme 2 focuses on maximising the value of eucalypt logs. This theme examines the potential to convert plantation grown eucalypt timber into high value logs for use in appearance-grade solid timber and veneer products. This theme examines the visual characteristics of the resources and compares it to the performance required in architectural design. Key projects in this theme focus on developing methods for specification and performance testing. This will enable the uptake of plantation eucalypt timbers for both generic building components and custom element manufacturing.
