Building a house using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is a quick, clean, and efficient process. According to Stora Enso, a renewable material company, a detached three-bedroom house can be built in as little as five to eight days. This speed of construction is beneficial to self-builders, as it allows them to maintain financial liquidity by reaching key mortgage payment milestones more quickly and thus having the mortgage stage payment released sooner. The panels used in CLT construction are also easy to assemble on-site making the process even more efficient and sustainable.
FOR SUSTAINABLE HOUSE DESIGN THE FINEST DETAILS ARE KEY 1. Air/Ground source heat pump 2. Cylinder and buffer tank 3. Underfloor heating 4. Radiators in upper storeys with TRVs 5. Triple glazing 6. Electric cooking 7. MVHR unit 8. South-facing roofs for installation of solar PV
CROSS-LAMINATED TIMBER (CLT) IS A LARGE-SCALE, PREFABRICATED, SOLID-ENGINEERED WOOD PANEL. DIMENSIONALLY STABLE. MASS. TIMBER. Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) is a highly advantageous alternative to conventional materials such as concrete, masonry, or steel, especially in multifamily and commercial construction. It is lightweight yet very strong, with superior acoustic, fire, seismic, and thermal performance, and is fast and easy to install, generating almost no waste onsite. A CLT panel consists of several layers of kiln-dried lumber boards stacked in alternating directions, bonded with structural adhesives, and pressed to form a solid, straight, rectangular panel. It consists of an odd number of layers and may be sanded before shipping. At the mill, CLT panels are cut to size, including door and window openings, with state-of-the art CNC routers, capable of making complex cuts with high precision. The finished CLT panels are exceptionally stiff, strong, and stable, handling load transfer on all sides.
