The two-volume 812-page CLT Handbook is the essential how-to resource for Canadian building professionals interested in construction and design using cross-laminated timber (CLT).
The edition covers:
fire and environmental performance
lifting and handling of CLT elements
This latest edition includes updated regulations, the research and provisions for compliance with the CSA Standard in Engineering Design in Wood. A state-of-the-art design prototype of an eight-storey mass timber building is included in a newly added chapter.
The handbook was developed by FPInnovations, a non-profit specializing in creating solutions that support the global competitiveness of the Canadian forest sector, and its government and industry partners. A PDF of the handbook is available on FPInnovations’ website. Printed copies are available for a fee on Amazon’s Print-On-Demand platform beginning March 2, 2020. French language and US Editions are also planned.
