Planning and building with cross laminated timber
The world's most advanced building material
Compared to other solid construction methods the manufacture and processing of cross laminated timber components requires very little energy. It contributes to sustainable carbon storage and thus to the minimization of the greenhouse effect through the fusion of CO2.
The weather impartial production of large-scale, already joined in the factory, wall, roof and ceiling members allows for a very high grade of prefabrication. Thus building shells can be erected in the shortest possible time.
CLT panels are prefabricated, complete with pre-cut openings for doors, windows, stairs, service channels and ducts, and shipped directly from the manufacturer to the job site, where they can be quickly and efficiently lifted into place
The common softwoods have a high specific humidity and heat storage capacity. Cross laminated timber elements therefore regulate the climate of living spaces and through a distinctive phase displacement and amplitude of the surface temperature, produce a high protection against summerly heating.
Light woodframe construction is still the most economical wood system for low-rise projects. CLT is competitive when compared to other materials in a variety of building types. CLT is particularly cost effective in large, regularly shaped structures and in situations where fabrication is repetitive.
CLT can be used for an entire building or any combination of wall, floor/ceiling and roof applications. Its light weight and other characteristics make it highly adaptable to different types of projects, designs and site conditions like soft soils or tight proximity to neighboring buildings.
Thermal conductivity is a measure of the rate of heat flow through one unit of thickness of a material subjected to a temperature gradient. The thermal conductivity of common structural wood is much less than the conductivity of metals with which wood is often mated in construction
The elemental facade of the Innovative Linköping University in southeastern Sweden will have windows made of aluminum, exterior rollets, perforated aluminum trim, and on the inside, the elements will be finished with CLT wood panels. The purpose of the building is to provide a certificate based on the Swedish Energy Efficiency Standard Miljöbyggnad (Gold Level).
