A closer look at cross laminated timber 

Following Bligh Tanner’s Design & Innovation Speaker Series event held earlier this year that explored ‘Designing with Cross Laminated Timber’, our Principal Structural Engineer, Toby Hodsdon, travelled to New Zealand as part of a research project with The University of Queensland and other industrial partners. The project investigated potential innovations in the future of housing construction and has found Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) to be a promising technology.

BT has also been working closely with XLam, a NZ-based manufacturer of CLT panels who are planning to open a manufacturing plant in Australia early in 2017. This will create many new opportunities to experiment locally with this exciting material.
