Course outline

New design concepts using engineered timber products are promising to increase sustainability and construction efficiency. Cross laminated timber (CLT) and other laminated products are appearing in multi-level building designs of 10 storeys and more.

This course is based on Liam Dewar's presentation at WoodSolutions Seminars 2011.
