dc.description.abstract This project reviewed and updated a pre-existing audit of emerging technologies (ETs) relevant to timber residential construction - as authored by Paevere and MacKenzie (2006). The scope of the study included wood related products, processes, technologies, and design concepts from North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Japan, New Zealand and Australia. The specific objectives of this project were to: - Review the currency and appropriateness of the 88 ETs previously identified in the Paevere and MacKenzie report including validation and where appropriate modification of the original evaluations - Identify new ETs including an evaluation of these technologies - Provide a web mountable version of the database (handed over to FWPA) presenting appropriate ETs to industry (http://buildinginnovations.fwpa.com.au/) An intended outcome of the project is to aid the design, construction and timber industries to gain a stronger awareness of emerging technologies and to provide a catalyst for the adoption of appropriate technologies in Australia â especially where cost, time, quality, sustainability, life cycle and end user benefits exist.
