TimberLab's Distinction

Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) – If your project contains unique features; is complex or large scale, then we can help with a solution. We provide advice on design and cost saving options for the engineered timber elements, working closely with consultants. We develop accurate 3D models, in coordination with the architect and engineer at early design stage, removing the need for multiple models which saves on cost and time throughout the project.

Commitment to Quality – Quality of production and service has always been a priority of TimberLab. Having been involved in the development of manufacturing standards since the 1970s, TimberLab is certified under Bureau Veritas third party inspection complying with the strict requirements of ASNZS1328 & AS 5068 for Glulam & Finger Jointing. 

Superior Grading Capabilities – TimberLab uses sonic testing of all timber to ensure strength and stiffness meets the requirements demanded in an engineered timber product for correct deflection and performance.

CAD Drawing and Engineering – TimberLab has in-house drawing capabilities for specialised engineered timber solutions and can provide engineering assistance if required.

Versatility – With our purpose-built facility, we can produce timber members of  Any length – Any shape – Any size.
