The Pendleton County School District in West Virginia is the first in the United States to build a new school in cross laminated timber. With panels for the 40,000-square-foot facility installed in less than three months by a crew of five carpenters and a crane operator, CLT represents a new world of opportunity for the growing district. In this presentation, the CLT erector for the project will discuss the advantages and challenges of using this new material in the context of structure, building envelope and exposed wood aesthetic. He’ll also share insights into the planning process, equipment and labor, and how CLT construction differs from typical methods.
A timber framer for more than 20 years, Charles has taught at the John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina for the past 10 years. He also recently completed the CLT installation at the Franklin Elementary School project in Franklin West Virginia. He has participated in national and international timber-frame projects, teaches workshops in the U.S. and abroad, and is a member of the Timber Framers Guild.
