The material used is called cross laminated timber.

You lay down a layer of planks in the size and shape you need, then glue another layer of planks on top of that but rotated 90 degrees, and then glue another layer of planks on top of that rotated the same way as the first layer, and then press them all together into a single panel.

Everything can be done pre-fab, and no insulation is needed as the material itself is a good insulator.  But the material can be expensive.

Lendlease managing director Mark Menhinnit said they had extensively tested the materials for fire risk with the CSIRO. ... 'The building just gets a char on the outside, the structural integrity is maintained through an intense fire event,' Mr Menhinnit said.

Sure it is...

Wow. Completely unnecessary to do that. Jet fuel can't melt wood.

Big deal.  Springfield had a whole skyscraper built out of popsicle sticks.

So the Aussies are bragging that they have wood and they can't wait for everyone to see their erection?

You know who else used these construction techniques?

No, not him,

I believe it's as fire resistant as the first dropped laptop battery will go.

actually a lot of the wood is used for this is insect blighted and not suitable for traditional lumber.
