TIMBER

WHAT IS CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER?

Cross Laminated Timber or CLT is an engineered wood product fabricated by bonding solid-sawn timber together in transverse and longitudinal layers with structural adhesives to produce thick timber panels.


The result is a product that when compared with steel and concrete, provides similar strength & stiffness, improved fire performance, health and economic benefits and an abundance of sustainability benefits.

LEADING SUSTAINABILITY

Timber is a beautiful, natural and 100% renewable resource. Substituting 1m³ of timber for traditional block and concrete during construction saves over 3 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. This substantial carbon off-set together with unparalleled renewability, low embodied energy and minimal operational energy make CLT the environmentally preferable choice. 

Did you know?

Monterey Kangaroo Point is replacing 1,170m³ of traditional concrete and blockwork for Australian timber. 

  • Australian Forestry can regrow Monterey in under 20 minutes
  • Monterey will be 3,744 tonnes of CO₂ better, equivalent of:
    • Removing over 700 petrol cars off the road for 1 year
    • The energy required to power a home for over 300 years
