SHAWOOD by Sekisui House
With a credible record of building more than fifty thousand homes since its launch in 1995, SHAWOOD is setting a new benchmark in Australian home building. SHAWOOD benefits from the decades of research and development that its founding company Sekisui House has fine-tuned over fifty years, having delivered an impressive 2.2 million dwellings globally. As well as Japan, Sekisui House now operates in China, Singapore, United States and Australia.
Underpinning every SHAWOOD home is a pre-engineered structural framework consisting of a post and beam system that incorporates glulam structural timber and specialised metal joints delivering millimetre perfect calibration. When combined they create a structure of extreme accuracy, rigidity and strength, capable of withstanding major natural occurring events such as earthquakes and typhoons. The innovative technique allows for large uninterrupted spans in excess of 8 metres, and stunning architectural features unique to SHAWOOD.
In 2014, Sekisui House launched its first major volume of SHAWOOD homes in Australia with the completion of an initial tranche of 20 homes in 2015 at its award winning masterplanned community The Hermitage in Sydney’s southwest. Following on from this success Sekisui House are continuing to deliver a strong pipeline of SHAWOOD homes focused across various markets within NSW.
