Cross Laminated Timber
This January, the International Code Council (ICC) approved a set of proposals that will allow tall wood buildings as part of the 2021 International Building Code (IBC). These changes will include three new construction types, Type IV-A, IV-B and IV-C, expanding the use of mass timber – most notably, these provisions will allow timber structures up to 18 stories and 270 feet.
Ask an engineer, architect or developer about the future of building, and it won’t be long before you hear three letters – CLT. But what is CLT? And why is it all the talk in industry circles?
