Parklea’s Timbertop Estate in Melbourne’s southeast will be home to an innovative commercial and retail hub that puts sustainability at the forefront via the use of a combination of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glue Laminated Timber (GLT), an underutilised and sustainable resource that is making waves in the property industry.
Designed by i2C in collaboration with Timber Design Studio, the hub will service the 700-residence Timbertop Estate in Officer via a retail offering and will also be home to Parklea’s new commercial office.
Installation of the mass timber with the CLT and Glulam beams are now complete with the building looking towards becoming watertight. Much of the external cladding and brickwork has been installed as well as the roof. The glazing is being installed in the coming weeks.
Looking for a May completion, the internal fit out of the first floor offices is well underway. The mass timber when finished will be a striking feature and will give warmth to the office fit out for the clients.
