Nelson Pine Industries Limited


Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is a highly sought-after product in the building and construction sector. As an engineered wood product it is an aesthetical, high performance construction product, and can be supplied as a prefabricated component to enhance off-site manufacture and modular construction methods which reduce waste and save time.

LVL offers a range of benefits to building owners, developers, specifiers and construction companies. NelsonPine® LVL provides a higher strength to weight ratio than concrete and steel, as well as the environmental and socio-economic benefits of wood.

There are significant carbon savings to be made by incorporating NelsonPine® LVL into buildings by reducing the carbon emissions associated with structural building elements.

The NelsonPine® LVL Mass Components team encourages all developers, specifiers and construction companies to engage early with us so your project can be designed utilising the benefits of NelsonPine® LVL Mass Components. For further information from NPIL about what we can do for your project, contact us.

Think of LVL as a big Meccano set – allow for consideration of tolerances. Close and early collaboration between architect, structural engineer, builder, manufacturer and fabricator results in significant efficiencies, cost savings and a reduced installation time frame – Steven van der Pol, Arrow International (NZ) Ltd.
