The benefits of using solid wood products in construction are increasingly recognized worldwide. To support the use of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), FPInnovations has completely revised its 2011 Edition of the CLT Handbook based on new research performed by FPInnovations and its partners. The CLT handbook is a must-have for every professional interested in building with CLT. The handbook provides in-depth, multi-disciplinary and peer-reviewed information on all performance attributes of CLT construction; new CLT provisions in the Canadian Standards Association’s Standard in Engineering Design in Wood; and a specialized chapter providing a design prototype of an eight-story mass-timber building. Reflecting changes made in Canadian codes and standards since the 2011 edition was published, the 2019 edition includes new information recently implemented in the CSA O86:19 standard.Published by FPInnovations, a non-profit R&D center specializing in wood construction and forest-based products, this all-new 2nd edition of the building-construction is a game-changing CLT Handbook with an emphasis on Canadian codes and standards.
