Haven Road apartment from above

29 January 2024
[Nelson] Haven Road is on the rise! The first level of CLT walls/floor (Cross Laminated Timber) was installed this week with 4 more levels to go on this 6-storey CLT (with a 1-storey concrete podium car park as its base) apartment complex in Nelson.

The seismic hold-down connection with mix angled screws supplied by Rothoblaas srl allows for robustness and reinstatement after a seismic event – a new innovative seismic resilient connection type all tested at the University of Canterbury by Ben Moerman and our very own Thomas Wright.

Thanks to Scott Construction New Zealand for the elevated POV and for doing a fantastic job bringing the RM Designs (Bernie O’Fagan) and Aaron Walton Architectural Design Studio joint venture timber design with XLam CLT and Techlam NZ Glulam to life!
