The award and trophy recognises the life of a man who was devoted to the forest industry in Australia and internationally.

Hyne Timber’s building information modelling (BIM) is a state-of- the-art modelling software that allows the company to use digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of timber to model physical assets; using the IT software to map out projects in order to provide assistance to decision makers on projects.

A key advantage of the software, BIM provides ongoing storage of information relating to maintenance, certification and warranties to assist with ongoing asset management post construction.

No company anywhere in the world has developed a BIM system for GLT that meets AS/NZS BIM standards Identifying an opportunity, the Hyne Timber Marketing Team, in coordination with the UQ Centre for Future Timbers, has developed a BIM system for the state government’s Maryborough Fire Station project, where Hyne Timber is the project proponent featuring Responsible Wood certified timber.

The BIM software has been used in the extensive stakeholder engagement to communicate with the community about the project. The software is a potential game-changer for timber application across all projects, specifically in the commercial sector.Social Share
