Summary
In this chapter I describe a multidisciplinary research project into cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels which aims to transform the Australian construction and development industry and involves a range of key partners. This project will introduce CLT panels as a way to build with a lightweight prefabricated low-carbon construction system that is advantageous for urban infill and residential buildings. The challenge, research questions, and the advantages of this system are explained herein.
