CLT and good working practices

Published at the end of 2017, the site handbook dedicated to cross laminated timber solid boards lays down best practices for using this pace-setting material.

Edited by PACTE—the action programme for construction quality and the energy transition—this handbook deals with the implementation of cross laminated timber solid boards, whether used for building walls or floors, or in works combining timber with concrete. Mainly intended for site staff, it gives an illustrated guide to good working practices, from site preparation to installation, that are consistent with the reference provisions (French standards, French building regulations, “RAGE” professional recommendations, etc.). A handy, practical book for all those building or intending to build with CLT.
