Confidential Reporting on Safer Structures
The Structural Engineer, Volume 100, Issue 7, 2022, Page(s) 18-19
This month's CROSS report concerns water ingress that caused parts of the cross-laminated timber (CLT) structural frame of an eight-year-old building to rot.
This month we highlight a report raising concerns about the fire safety of multistorey buildings comprising cross-laminated timber structures and the risk of collapse in the event of an uncontrolled fire.
This paper describes the design, fabrication and erection of the MultiPly timber pavilion, which was made from the first cross-laminated timber to be manufactured at volume in the UK.
