Cross Laminated Timber construction has seen a vast increase in popularity in recent years and is providing a welcome shift from energy intensive traditional construction such as masonry and steel. Projects are diverse and widespread throughout the UK from multi-storey residential buildings in London to affordable housing projects on the Isle of Mull.
