Materials and Systems

We are experienced with all modern construction materials and systems

At Matter, we prioritise material investigation at the concept design stage to ensure we select the appropriate system for your project.

We consider the social and environmental impacts of each material and make an educated design decision based on our findings. Whether it’s post-tensioned concrete, steel or mass timber design, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment through viable sourcing options.

More recently, we have analysed the different levels of embodied carbon produced by post tensioned concrete and mass timber for an office building in Cremorne. Our in-house carbon calculator revealed that mass timber would reduce the building’s carbon footprint significantly in the superstructure (A1-A5).
