Nordic X-LAM

Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is light, natural, cost-effective, and sustainable.  It creates new possibilities for the design of low-embodied carbon structures.

It can be used for walls, roofs, and floors and because of its cross-ply construction it is exceptionally stable, works as a shear wall and can provide substantial cantilevers in a modest thickness.

X-LAM Advantages

  • CLT buildings can be assembled with simple tools and equipment.
  • Assembly is fast, with small crews and no waiting for curing or formwork.
  • CLT’s are 80% lighter than concrete, which means substantial cost and time savings for foundations.
  • Winter weather doesn’t require hoarding and heating and speed of construction is largely unaffected by cold.
  • Attachment of insulation, cladding and finishes is quick thanks to nail base that is everywhere.
  • CLT’s are a carbon negative material, dramatically reducing a building’s environmental footprint.

Nordic LAM+ beams and columns combine with X-LAM walls for rapid builds.
