An amazing wooden construction was built in North America, more precisely in Canada, in 2016 by the British Columbia University. This building was made of wood in the form of CLT panels with only 9 workers and it is planned to build skyscrapers from the same material.

The CLT is a very durable material, 100% natural, made of wooden boards glued one over the other. Experts says that this material has a resistance comparable to that of steel, but it is four times easier. This makes the resistance of a building in an earthquake greatly increasing. Other features of the wood are elasticity, sound insulation and thermal insulation. Besides this, being a natural material, it does not pollute the environment. The cost of a wooden construction is lower because the material is cheaper than other traditional materials such as bricks or BCA and requires fewer workers and the execution time is also reduced.

Although it is not yet well tested, investors believe that the construction timber market and CLT are on the rise, because americans prefer the wooden construction on small towns that are surrounded by forests, where timber is easy to obtain and should not be brought from a very large distance.

The Oregon State of the United States, along with Oregon State University, has spent hundreds of millions of dollars with the intention of promoting Cross Laminated Timber within the university, investing in courses whereby students learn to design and build with this material. Also in the US, a wooden construction called Framework, which will have 12 floors, has recently been endorsed. This will be the tallest building made in this way for the moment on the country.

The present study examines how the CLT could be used to rehabilitate older buildings made of concrete. With this material, historic buildings could be restored at advantageous prices. Andrew Barbosa of OSU, College of Engineering, is working together with Seismic Strategies Cascade on a $ 150,000 project to learn more about this. We should all take examples and use wood for construction because it is a renewable resource that does not pollute the environment, it is cheaper, durable, good thermal and sound insulation and the list can continue.
