Cross Laminated Timber and the Great Plains

June 14, 2018 – 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Co-hosted by WoodWorks, CLT and the Great Plains is a professional development seminar that explores the use of cross-laminated timber in architecture. Intended for architects, construction professionals and forestry organizations, it will feature examples of small to mid-sized projects built from CLT and other engineered lumber products. It will highlight the work of architects currently using CLT in the US, with an emphasis on challenges and solutions related to building codes, engineering and fabrication. Topics will also include existing and potential supply sources within the Great Plains region, and a report on the influence of European methods of small-scale CLT production.
