Digitally Fabricated CLT House

 
 

 

This project delivers Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) house. All wall, floor and roof elements are designed and constructed in CLT. The project has an environmental imperative as part of the client brief. In comparison to traditional technologies CLT, being timber, sequesters carbon, has natural thermal performance, is lighter requiring smaller footings, is fast and efficient in construction (this 450 sqm project was prefabricated in 4 days and erected in 83 hours) and is less wasteful through using the smaller dimensioned timbers in its makeup. The insulation used is 100% wood fibre and cork, which further adds to its environmental credentials.
