Laminated veneer lumber - LVL - is an engineered wood product that’s increasingly popular with the construction industry as it discovers LVL’s many advantages over traditional timber.
Wesbeam’s LVL is a lightweight, high-strength building product engineered from wood sourced from renewable, sustainable resources. Our range of LVL products is designed to span further, carry greater loads and withstand the tough Australian climate.
Wesbeam’s Design Centre provides high-level engineering and design advice in the use of Wesbeam’s products in free-standing residential, multi-residential and commercial structures in both LWF and mass timber.
Over 85% of fully and semi-detached homes built in Australia are constructed using lightweight timber framing. Lightweight timber framing is now also increasingly used in the construction of prefabricated multi-storey apartments.
With 15 years’ experience in the Australian LVL industry, our Tall Timber Building Systems division offers a range of high-performing structural LVL solutions for multi-residential and commercial mass timber applications specifically designed for Australian conditions.
Strong, sustainable timber. Readily available and lightweight for its strength, timber has been a trusted building material for centuries.
Wesbeam is Australia’s only LVL manufacturer and distributor - with a world class factory in Perth and next day delivery from Wesbeam distribution centres.

A five-yearly report prepared by the Montreal Process Implementation Group for Australia and the National Forest Inventory Steering Committee on behalf of the Australian, state and territory governments.
This project identifies drivers for and barriers to the increased use of prefabricated timber building systems in Class 2 to 9 buildings.
This report analyses the cost differences between two residential accommodation projects recently completed on Australia’s eastern seaboard. One project was built using conventional precast concrete panel construction and the other utilised innovative prefabricated timber construction.
