Tasmania becomes first state to adopt wood-­first building policy (TAS)

The Minister for Resources, Building and Construction, the Honorable Guy Barnett, has announced today that Tasmania will be the first state in Australia to introduce a state-wide Wood Encouragement Policy (WEP). The WEP aims to ensure that sustainably sourced timber is fully considered as a key design component, where feasible, in the construction and refurbishment of all public building projects.
