Non-residential Market - US WoodWorks Program helps to broaden use of CLT

With increasing interest among engineers and architects in the U.S. regarding cross-laminated timber (CLT), the US WoodWorks program is helping to broaden use of CLT. Working closely in partnership with FPInnovations, the program launched a U.S. version of the CLT Handbook (already available in Canada) with updated information and specific data relative to U.S. building codes and potential uses of CLT. The Handbook was introduced at the first ever CLT Symposium in Seattle, Washington in February 2013, which presented a variety of technical and project related presentations to an audience of building professionals.
