CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER
Complete building set
Building sets according to customers design specifications:
load-bearing structure (CLT, glulam, steel connectors, fasteners);
insulation materials (mineral wool and wood fiber);
air tightness tapes, wind barriers, wooden battens for ventilated facade;
other components upon request.
Cross laminated timber (CLT) is prefabricated with increased precision offering exceptional technical properties as well as lighter environmental footprint than concrete or steel. It is well know for numerous benefits, including significantly faster construction time, lower labour costs, reduced waste and carbon emission, improved thermal performance and design versatility.
OF CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER (CLT)
Faster construction time
CLT can be built between 25% and 75% faster than similar reinforced concrete and steel buildings, it has a 20% overall faster schedule, and uses 90% less construction traffic. CLT has much higher strength to weight ratio than concrete or steel, providing lighter buildings on foundations.
Reduced carbon footprint
Roughly 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from building materials and construction; another 28% comes from building operations, which mostly involve energy. By replacing concrete and steel with CLT, it is calculated to have 26.5% reduction in global warming potential.
CLT allows architects to dream, design, and build bigger. It offers endless possibilities for individual and modern design, construction, and housing. CLT panels are currently allowing the construction of buildings with up to 30 floors in Canada, and up to 40 floors in Finland.
Research and testing has clearly demonstrated that CLT structures can meet or exceed the most demanding earthquake and seismic design requirements. It has been a proven solution complying with building seismic codes and demonstrating its ability to survive an earthquake.
