Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

MASS TIMBER SYDNEY, AUSTRALIAMacquarie University - Clinical Education Building

This project, built by Savcon, was headed by Buildcorp Group bringing to life Macquarie University’s vision for longevity and biophilia for all current & future students, lecturers & visitors alike.

Built in 2019, visiting this imposing building today, still gives us the sense of welcoming strength, warmth, safety, beauty & character, all with minimising carbon footprint. It is no surprise that the Ainsworth Building won the Australian Institute of Architects (NSW) Awards, Educational Architecture Award, in 2021 and Australian Timber Design Awards, People’s Choice Award, in 2020 and shortlisted for 2021 Sustainability Award in the Education and Research Category.

Construction that is environmentally friendly, strong & everlasting can best be achieved when using timber as the core material.

MASS TIMBER SYDNEY, AUSTRALIABay Pavilions Arts + Aquatic Leisure Centre

An iconic new gateway for the region, Bay Pavilions, the Batemans Bay Regional Aquatic & Arts Leisure Centre, has become a drawcard for sports, tourism and regional arts programs for the Eurobodalla Shire.

A highlight of the building is the innovative use of timber through the entry foyers and over the aquatic areas. Savcon were appointed to install the long spanning hybrid timber ‘bow-string’ truss spanning the main pool hall which is a defining feature of the building, requiring a detailed dual lift (2 crane) lifting strategy to help support the trusses during the aerial manoeuvre.

Our team worked on the design and lifting strategy for the primary bow-string trusses, which were up to 33m long and weighed up to 7tonne. Savcon fabricated and installed the GLT pool hall main rafters, consisting of 0.900×0.365x33m GLT with steel bow tie tension truss. The Scope also included 0.400×0.120x20mm portal frame through the theatre link…

Completed Project [Mass Timber]

MASS TIMBER SYDNEY, AUSTRALIAEric Tweedale Granville Stadium

Glulam timber structure was the integral aspect of the design.The glulam timber roof cantilevers, over eight meters, provide shelter from the weather and solar shade cover for the seating. The use of a mass timber structure in the Stadium is the first use of glulam timber for this type of facility in Australia, representing an impressive achievement in timber engineering. The concept ‘V’ shaped cantilevered roof beams were inspired by modest aboriginal architecture and local environment.

Sustainable design was an important objective of the project, and the timber construction was key to achieving this – low carbon, low waste and highly energy efficient.

MASS TIMBER SYDNEY, AUSTRALIAStromlo Leisure Centre

Stromlo Leisure Centre was a pioneering project, boasting the longest spanning Glulam installation in Australia. Savcon completed the main roof, which was constructed of structural glulam timber beams, struts and purlins for the main roof over the pool concourse. The glulam struts are approximately 320m3 of European sourced clustered spruce, reaching up in intervals around the perimeter of the main concourse like tree branches, supporting the beams as they span across the volume. Both the beams and struts taper, allowing the structure to read more finely, and the space to read more fluid and open. The total span of each rafter is a whopping 47mtrs! This covers the full width of the pools and concourses. Rafters are positioned at 7mtr centres. To enable such a long span, each rafter is 1200mm deep x 200mm thick. This also allows for all steel connections to be recessed and concealed
