Sustainable Building with CLT

The Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences, or SFWS, actively works to increase awareness of the many benefits of cross-laminated timber, known as CLT, and to promote its use for construction in the South. In addition, the school conducts research according to industry reports within the proceedings of the North American Mass Timber Research Needs Workshop. These initiatives are achieved in partnership with the Colleges of Engineering and Architecture, Design, and Construction, as well as the Office of Sustainability, in order to integrate and leverage resources.

Using CLT has numerous benefits economically and environmentally, thereby showing promise for many industries, including developers and contractors, architects and engineers, as well as foresters and landowners.
