    The cross laminated timber builds (CLT) seem like a great way to reach the structural limits (builds as high as 5 stories i believe) of panel construction. There is however a need for more solid timber which limits (or may perhaps endanger) forest inventories of suitable timber. Ok, so to somehow use the composite materials and layups to perhjaps supplant cross laminated timber where structural properties are not as demanding is a next step….Sounds like wood product development surpassing the ability of our current design methodologies taught in school and promoted through “tropical” details and code requirements….just thinking out loud as components grow towards a programmed architectural building project…
