Designing and Constructing CLT & Glulam Structures

Event code: 79051

Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glued Laminated Timber (Glulam) are engineered wood systems which have been identified as innovative products that can raise construction productivity. Such systems offer greater design flexibility, rapid installation, and waste and weight reduction as seen in many construction projects overseas. In the local scene, the industry has become more aware of the benefits of such technology, with a number of CLT/Glulam projects in the pipeline. In order to gain real traction for its adoption, the various considerations such as humidity, performance, termite protection, building envelope design and fire safety regulations have to be addressed.

This 2-day workshop aims to elevate the knowledge and skill of the participants in the design and construction of CLT and Glulam structures. It will address the various considerations which may have caused reservations in its adoption. 

• Quality assurance requirements
• Transport and storage consideration
• Architectural and structural design issues
• Project site planning
• Connection and assembly sequence
• Construction challenges
• Fire, acoustic, vibration and thermal performance
• Construction and management of building envelope
• Durability and maintenance
• Case studies
