Founding Committee Member - Pacific Region

Lisa Ottenhaus is a structural engineer and lecturer at the School of Civil Engineering, the University of Queensland (UQ), in Brisbane, Australia, with expertise in design of timber connections. Before joining UQ, Lisa undertook a PhD at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, researching connections in tall timber buildings, and holds a Master of Science in Structural Engineering from TU Delft, and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Ottenhaus and their research team currently focus on off-site timber construction, investigating different timber materials and systems, such as CLT, light timber framing, and novel timber materials and systems. Part of their work aims to minimize the environmental impact of the construction industry, and to transition the construction industry toward a circular framework

One of the greatest attributes that people and organisations share within the global mass timber construction sector is unity. Unity is what binds us, helps us to be better, to achieve more together and drive a different future.

Above all else, the mass timber construction sector is special and unique for its diversification for technology, process and methods of working.
