Cross-laminated timber (CLT) construction is increasingly being used for residential, commercial and public sector buildings.

Offering a significant strength to weight ratio, improved installation speeds, reduced on-site waste and a high standard of airtightness, CLT also has the advantage of being a renewable resource.

Highly illustrated with photographs and technical drawings, this book demonstrates the versatility of CLT construction as an engineered timber solution, sometimes also used in conjunction with glued laminated timber beams. It provides clear and helpful recommendations to assist architects, engineers and their clients who are increasingly looking for sustainable, efficient structural solutions.

There are four key sections:

An introduction to CLT, showcasing its uses for architects, building designers and their clients
Design principles, including studies of several exemplar buildings
CLT product performance, inlcluding; structural design, connections, fire, thermal, and acoustic performance, sustainability and appearance
13 case studies representing a variety of building types.

Many TRADA member companies at the forefront of CLT building design in the UK have helped with the development of this landmark book including: Waugh Thistleton, Arup, Ramboll, Eurban, B&K Structures, KLH UK Ltd, Stora Enso, Hugh Strange Architects, Paddy Hislop and Exova BM TRADA.
