A Highscraper is a structure usually a building that is not quite high enough to "scrape the sky", thus disallowing deeming it a skyscraper. The prestige of a Highscraper comes from the material in which it is constructed. High scrapers use materials which are uncommonly used for high structures making them stand out from the common concrete and steel skyscrapers. timber high scrapers are becoming more common place with more sophisticated engineered timber and the employment of fire engineering.

"highscrapers have a long way to come but they have so much potential with the pre-cursing steel and concrete skyscrapers"
