Lendlease launches world’s tallest KLH tower

08.06.12

'Forté' which is currently under construction in Melbourne/Australia and due for completion in October this year, will be the tallest cross laminated timber tower in the world. The 10 storey Forté structure will house 23 apartments and ground floor retail.

By using CLT, Forté, will reduce CO2 equivalent emissions by more than 1,400 tonnes when compared to concrete and steel.

In close collaboration with Lendlease KLH UK provided engineering consultancy, fabrication drawings and logistics support. The panels were manufactured in our parent factory in Austria.
