Competition was tight with many missing out by only one point.

This years’ Awards feature 21st century technology from extensive use of LVL and CLT in homes to multi-storey commercial buildings, this year’s entries for the NZ Wood Resene Timber Design Awards showed modern applications of wood are providing cost effective solutions for asset owners.
