Summary
A worldwide interest in timber multi-storey buildings is expected due to the environmental advantages of timber construction when compared to buildings in concrete and steel. Cross-laminated Timber, or CLT, was developed in the early 1990’s and glues a...

Summary
This research investigates a new structural system based on a central core of CLT (cross-laminated timber) panels to provide more useful multi-level timber buildings that are taller and with open floor areas. Because pinus radiata is a suitable timber for the manufacture of CLT panels, the system has the potential to add value...
