Cross Laminated Timber anywhere?

Sam Bargetz | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

Hi there
Is anybody aware of a US or Canadian manufacturer (not an importer) of cross laminated timber panels? We would love to use them on a few apartment buildings…
cheers
Sam

    Sam,

    All Canadians that I know of - there are some folks in Idaho who are close to being able to manufacture, but I don't know status and if that's an exposed panel, or if it's industrial grade finish.

    Reposted here for posterity from my JLC posting:

    Nordic Wood Products in Quebec is now fabricating CLT on the East Coast, they call it X-Lam. We've used a lot of Nordic products in the past, their black spruce glu-lams are great for a local east coast source, and much lighter in color than the typical doug fir glu-lams from the West Coast. I heard rough estimates of ~$20 per cubic foot of material for X-Lam a bit ago.

    More links for those interested, it doesn't seem particularly applicable to replace 2x residential construction, but really interesting light commercial steel / concrete hybrid construction:

    Here's a good slideshow of what it looks like in the field: http://www.slideshare.net/alaindesal...-by-liam-dewar
