CLT

Cross-Laminated Timber

Carbon12 is the tallest wood framed building in the United States made from cross-laminated timber, or CLT. CLT is a cutting-edge engineered wood product that is revolutionizing the construction industry.

CLT is made from kiln-dried timber that’s been glued and pressed into large-scale, pre-fabricated, solid panels. These panels are installed in alternating directions and may be made from three, five, seven or nine layers. CLT panels are created to custom specifications, making for fast installation and no waste at the job site.

  • Offer better acoustics, insulation and fire resistance than other materials
  • Meet or exceed demanding earthquake and seismic design requirements
  • Are made from certified, sustainably-forested soft wood (ours is from Canada and certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative
