Mass timber is an innovative and sustainable construction material composed of engineered wood products, such as Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT), Glue-Laminated Timber (Glulam), and Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT). These materials are made by layering and bonding wooden boards, which creates a strong, durable, and lightweight alternative to traditional construction materials like steel and concrete. Mass timber has gained popularity in recent years due to its environmental benefits, including its carbon sequestration potential and reduced construction waste, as well as its ability to expedite construction timelines. The use of mass timber in modern architecture and design has paved the way for tall wood buildings, showcasing its versatility and aesthetic appeal, while contributing to more environmentally responsible construction practices.
