Take one look at the timelapse of the NIKAU building going up and you'll see some of the advantages of using LVL. Speed and ease of construction is a major benefit, alongside sustainability, affordability and numerous other persuaders to do with the construction process and performance of the finished building.
But rather than use a thousand words to explain, it's often easier to see for yourself, as this video (provided courtesy of BRANZ) of the acclaimed NIKAU Building shows.

Who says that FAST and GOOD are incompatible?
