Mass Timber Construction Products Overview

Mass timber is a category of construction technology products that have transformed what it means to build in a sustainable way. It is comprised of multiple solid section wood panels that are laminated together, which provide exceptional strength and stability. MTC is a strong, low-carbon alternative to concrete and steel.

CLT is a timber panel system gaining in popularity around the globe after being widely adopted in Europe. The material’s strength, dimensional stability, and rigidity allow it to be used in mid- and high-rise construction.

NLT is a century-old construction method that is undergoing a design renaissance. It can be found in historical buildings as well as in new projects, where its structural performance and design elegance come together to create inspiring spaces.

DLT is gaining traction for its ease of use with computer-controlled (CNC) machinery—such as lathes, routers, and mills—and its all-wood composition. DLT is similar to NLT but uses wood dowels to join boards instead of nails or screws.

Glulam is a structural engineered wood product commonly used for beams and columns in residential and commercial applications. Glulam allows for long spans of exposed framing, as well as attention-grabbing curvatures.

One of the greatest attributes that people and organisations share within the global mass timber construction sector is unity. Unity is what binds us, helps us to be better, to achieve more together and drive a different future.

Above all else, the mass timber construction sector is special and unique for its diversification for technology, process and methods of working.
