New Details

This month we have put together a selection of cross laminated timber (CLT) details.

CLT is a growing construction method that demonstrates a number of benefits, including good structural properties, low impact on the environment, fast construction with off site preparation and good fire performance to name a few. 

This set of CLT details consist of:

  • CLT foundation detail with concrete ground floor slab
  • CLT foundation detail with concrete plinth
  • CLT window head detail
  • CLT window sill detail
  • CLT jamb detail
  • CLT intermediate floor detail
  • CLT roof eaves details

Check out some examples of the CLT details below.

To accompany this set of details we have also published a new technical study: CLT Construction. This guide provides an overview of working with CLT and the key points to consider when detailing CLT. Make sure you check it out.
