Disruption through prefabrication – the evolution and future of mass timber
Due to the lightweight capability and the advancement of post-processed technology of both CLT and mass timber, when combined with BIM and manufacturing technologies we now have the ability to adapt and create new building systems. These include 2D structural / load bearing through-wall, roof components and 3D volumetric systems. Mass timber is becoming a more frequently used solution when combined with traditional materials that can result in low carbon, energy efficient buildings that can be constructed quicker, lighter and cheaper than conventional building designs.
