Launching: the future of the built environment

CLTP Tasmania has officially launched the world’s first hardwood Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) today, along with their new brand – Cusp Building Solutions. The website cusp.com.au is now live ahead of their launch event, which is being held in Hobart on 29th June. 

Cusp CLT is made from Tasmanian Plantation Oak (Eucalyptus Nitens) sourced from certified sustainable plantations grown in Tasmania. Using a resource that is currently exported as woodchips, they have created a world-leading Mass Timber product for the Australian building industry.  

Robert Morris-Nunn (AM), one of Tasmania’s most adventurous and respected architects, will be officially launching the product and brand with a keynote presentation about the future of the built environment. Originally scheduled for June 2nd, the launch was postponed due to the Victorian Coronavirus Outbreak.

“I’ve waited 20 years to see this type of innovation come to fruition in Tasmania,” he said. “I’m already working on incorporating Cusp CLT into several very exciting projects. It is definitely the future of construction in this state.”

Cusp Chief Executive Officer Chris Skeels-Piggins says the business was born from a fundamental belief that it’s our obligation to extract the best possible value from the resources entrusted to us.

 “Cusp is about transformation, sustainability and a determination to drive change. Change that is in perpetual motion: improving the built environment while continuously protecting the natural one.

“The result is building solutions at the leading edge, with impeccable sustainability credentials. We discover better ways to create strikingly beautiful, effortlessly useful buildings and spaces. We also understand what matters in the wider world and how we can make a positive contribution to its future.”

Cusp’s products have achieved certification from the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA). They are the first CLT in the world to do so. 

Cusp will be launched to a gathering of architects, builders, and stakeholders at the Henry Jones Atrium, a space designed by Morris Nunn (nearly) 20 years ago using timber, innovative inclusive ways, well ahead of its time. 

Ends.
