MPP36 – 4-Storey Residential Building in Port Melbourne – Dec 2021
Pushing the boundaries of small footprint design, this innovative four-story residential building was completed just weeks ago on the fringe of North Melbourne’s CBD. Our colleagues at Timber Building Systems (TBS) came up trumps when challenged with this project, built in a mere 4.1m x 15.9m footprint and located among existing buildings in a narrow street.

MPP35 – Magna Glulam Merbau Pergola in South Australia – Nov 2021
Meyer Timber has saved the day by supplying Magna Glulam product for a pergola structure in Adelaide. The pergola had sizing constraints which meant that from a durability and design perspective the only suitable timber product was Magna Glulam. A satisfied Peter Graham (Project Engineer) stated “The necessary stock items were sourced from Meyer Timber and they did a tremendous job in compiling the job lot of posts, beams and rafters, as well as and coordinating supply for the project.

MPP34 – Qikpanel cassettes for sub-floor in Neerim South (VIC) – Oct 2021
Another successful sub-floor cassette job was completed for GJ Gardner Homes in the Gippsland region in Victoria. As the external walls were clad (and not brick veneer), the perimeter of the floor needed to be exact. With bearers installed the same morning, the floor cassettes were positioned and allowed wall frames to continue seamlessly due to the precision of the factory manufactured floor panels.

MPP32 – Qikpanel floor cassettes (Drouin, VIC) – Aug 2021
Our Qikpanel sub-floor cassette offer is gaining plenty of interest in the Victorian Gippsland region. We completed our third supply and install job only last week, with a fourth project lined up for installation late-August. This month’s Project Profile focuses on the latest job in Drouin. The striking feature of this project was the ability to complete both sub-floor cassettes and wall frame installation on the same day.

MPP31 – Wollemi Shrine (Machined posts and beams) – Jul 2021
Our pre-cut pergola service was the ideal choice for a Shrine being built at Wollemi College in Werrington. The posts and beams were machined and pre-coated by Meyer Timber and meshed together perfectly with roof trusses by Hunter Frames. Featuring F27 recycled posts and GL21S beams, the 12x12m structure will be a local landmark.

MPP30 – Floor Cassettes with a Difference – May 2021
The Eternity Life in West Footscray (Melbourne), a 61-unit (4-storey) residential development, was opened in late 2020. The floor system for this project was designed and supplied by Meyer Timber/TBS using pre-fabricated cassettes incorporating a custom-designed acoustic system. The builder, who traditionally uses concrete floors, was pleasantly surprised by the level of comfort and stability that he experienced when walking on the floor during construction.

MPP29 – Sub-floor cassettes (Drouin, VIC) – Apr 2021
Our first sub-floor cassette job for 2021 was a real success, as we were able to meet all expectations of the builder. A solid and level floor completed within a day allowed the carpentry crew to seamlessly install wall frames on the following morning. The cassettes included sub-floor insulation, wet-area flooring and set-downs for showers, so the builder had less issues to worry about on site. What’s more, our supply and install (including bearers) package meant the builder’s carpentry crew was able to finish off another job simultaneously, giving cash flow benefits to the builder.

Located in Greystanes NSW, this project used the Pro9 insulated wall panels externally, along with traditional timber stud walls internally.

Recently we had a chance to show-case all of Meyer Timber’s cassette options, with pre-fabricated floor, rafters and stairs within a single house. Accurate framing by Dahlsens Ulladulla and builder Matt Stewart ensured all the members slotted together with precision. Saving weeks of on-site labour, this is an excellent example of how Frame & Truss plants can add value by partnering with our pre-fab team.

MPP23 – TBS Panelised Wall System (Toorak Rd, Melbourne) – Jul 2020
Our ‘cousins’ Timber Building Systems (TBS) were challenged with the task of installing 2 luxury apartments on the rooftop of an existing shopping arcade right in the heart of the South Yarra shopping precinct. This project certainly presented some challenges, with no lay-up area, no time and a small footprint for the crane, but the TBS team managed to complete it in only 2.5 days. The developer has now fully realised the value of the air space above the property, therefore dramatically increasing the value of the investment without buying any more land.
