Australian-made Ecoply at Monash University

Within the new Monash University Chancellery building designed by ARM Architecture, two central elliptical voids can be found. These rise up to the sky and bring light into the middle of the building.

Ecoply plywood was specified by TGA Engineers because it could be made efficiently and cost-effectively. It would also be stable and deviate less with moisture in the environment. Over 5 kms of FSC certified, Australian-made Ecoply plywood went into the balustrade and handrail construction.
