The selection of an appropriate wood type as a structural material mainly depends on the environmental conditions of a region, such as humidity and temperature. Besides, the availability of the material with a reasonable cost is another concern in the selection. In this study, replaceability of “bangkirai” type of wood with “iroko” type of wood is investigated in terms of durability and treatability. The need for this study is aroused from the lack of “bangkirai” wood to satisfy the necessary conditions aforementioned above in the construction of visitor’s platform of Göbeklitepe Roof Canopy Structure. Göbeklitepe, which is known as the world’s first temple, is located in 18 km distance to the city of Şanlıurfa, Turkey. A visitor’s platform is planned to be built on this area in order to present the findings, the archaeological remains and the architecture to the society. The plank flooring material used on various parts of the visitor’s platform of this roof canopy structure is specified as “bangkirai” type of wood in the technical specification of the project. This study aims to reveal if it is convenient and suitable to use “iroko” type of wood instead of “bangkirai” type of wood on the related parts of platform.
