Abstract

Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) is an innovative wood product, which can be used for almost all superstructure elements. It is generally produced from kiln dried, fast growing timber. Currently the majority of CLT used within the UK construction industry is manufactured in central mainland Europe and imported to the UK. The goal of this study is to establish the conditions required for implementing a CLT production and construction capability using available UK timber stock, thus offering a low carbon alternative to multi-story steel and concrete commercial constructions.
