True. Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is a new and innovative building material that permits fast and efficient construction of single or multi-residential type buildings. Green building practices have helped CLT’s popularity, with its combination of environmental performance, sustainability, design flexibility, cost-competitiveness and structural integrity.
That's right. Cross Laminated Timber have a combination of strength, ductility and light weight form the ideal earthquake-proof system. It has the best long-term stability of any wood building system. Building a CLT home can be a carbon positive project where more carbon is saved than emitted. The only fully renewable heavy duty building material, requires a fraction of carbon to produce.
Cross-laminated timber provides an innovative massive building system for single- and multi -family residential buildings, multi-storey residential and commercial buildings, buildings for business and industry, and for special applications in structural timber constructions. Very interesting indeed.
