CLTP Tasmania has officially launched the world’s first hardwood Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), along with their new brand – Cusp Building Solutions. Cusp CLT is made from Tasmanian Plantation Oak (Eucalyptus Nitens) sourced from certified sustainable plantations grown in Tasmania. Using a resource that is currently exported as woodchips, they have created a world-leading mass timber product for the Australian building industry.
CLTP Tasmania is the manufacturing entity for the Hermal Group, currently based in Wynyard, Tasmania. The Hermal Group is a diversified private company based in Victoria, Australia for over 70 years. The Group has operations in construction, timber wholesale, modular construction and the marine sector. The Project has had strong local and State government support for the development of the new mill.
Cusp’s products have achieved certification from the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA). Cusp CEO Chris Skeels-Piggins says: “The result is building solutions at the leading edge, with impeccable sustainability credentials. We discover better ways to create strikingly beautiful, effortlessly useful buildings and spaces. We also understand what matters in the wider world and how we can make a positive contribution to its future.”
