Australia is all set to build new records. The world’s tallest wooden tower is all set to be built in Australia in the western state of Perth. The 50-storey timber-clad building will be based on a hybrid design consisting of 42 percent timber and the rest reinforced concrete. Western Australian local authorities have approved the construction of the skyscraper that reaches an unprecedented height. The building that will be located on Charles Street in South Perth will claim the title of the world’s tallest wooden structure once completed.
This is the second timber-concrete hybrid building that will be built in Australia. It is a great move towards making sustainable and green buildings. The newly proposed timber-clad hybrid tower will be 191.2 meters tall (627 feet) and will be constructed in Southern Perth with about 200 apartments.
