Abstract

This thesis aims to develop advanced timber-based panelised prefabrication in an impactful manner. The research approach involved the establishment of close collaborative industry-partnerships which were then leveraged to best satisfy the critical needs faced in industry, resulting in targeted in-depth advancements across a range of areas. Five core areas for detailed advancement were identified, namely: manufacturing processes, waterproofing, wall systems, design methods (including optimal configuration selection) and floor systems. Within each core area, the pressing limitations of most immediate commercial need were investigated and addressed in detail. Consequently, the original contribu..
