Mainstreaming CLT: The Future of Cross Laminated Timber in Scotland

CSIC, in partnership with Confor, Forestry Commission Scotland and Wood for Good, hosted a half day event “Mainstreaming CLT – The Future of Cross Laminated Timber in Scotland”.

Hosted at CSIC’s recently launched 35,000 sq ft “Innovation Factory”, attendees heard from leading Scottish CLT exponents including Timber Design Initiatives, CCG (OSM) Ltd, Carbon Dynamic & Glulam Solutions about live projects being delivered across the UK and contributed to discussions, through an open panel session, around the opportunities for mainstreaming CLT use in the future.

Delegates were also able to attend a demonstration of CSIC’s new large format vacuum press, the first commercial scale, open access CLT manufacturing press in the UK.

Overall this half day event was deemed a huge success with a great response towards not only the speakers but also the application of CLT in a wider sense.
