Timber

Timber is receiving much renewed interest in construction, perhaps because it is one of our only
truly renewable construction materials.

New engineered timber products, such as cross-laminated timber and laminated veneer lumber, are opening up new opportunities
for large scale structures that would usually be built out of steel and concrete.

This teaching module gives a brief introduction to structural design of timber and highlights
a few case study buildings.
