Abstract

Timber is gaining its popularity in the construction of low to the mid-rise buildings and sometimes in high-rises due to its sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and availability all around the world. In addition, the prefabricated building is getting popular due to advances in the automation industry, reduction in resources including time, labour, and waste; and cost-effectiveness in mass production. Due to higher capacity demands for mid-rises and convenience in design for manufacturing and assembly (DfMA) in prefabrication, a new development of prefabricated load bearing closed panel composite timber (CPCT) wall system made of oriented strand boards (OSBs) stiffened by sawn-cut timber stud..
