Carbon footprint counts! Using wood reduces carbon footprint: As trees grow, they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Manufactured wood products retain 50% of their carbon (dry weight), and wood products require less energy to manufacture than many other products.
The ability to go higher with wood opens opportunities for cost savings. CLT is lighter than steel and concrete systems, and thus requires smaller foundations. Lighter buildings help reduce cost impact when challenged with poor soil conditions. Trends are showing higher rental rates for more organic spaces.
CLT goes up quickly. CLT walls are prefabricated in a factory, allowing higher quality construction, lower build time and less time on site.
