Last week’s Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) Symposium was, by all accounts, a tremendous success. Over 240 representatives from BC’s design and construction community and the forest products industry turned out to hear the latest on CLT panels and how they have changed the face of wood construction in Europe. Extensive and detailed presentations were given by experts in the field of architectural design, engineering, manufacturing, seismic resistance, connections, fire safety, acoustics, floor vibrations, durability, and environmental performance.
Copies of the presentations given at the CLT Symposium are available on the BC Wood website at http://www.bcwood.com/?page_id=2579. An additional overview of CLT and its’ impact in North America is available on the Journal of Commerce’s website http://www.joconl.com/article/id42954.
