About the Company

The main objective of the project is to develop expertise in order to offer a new service in the design of large-scale timber buildings, which use state-of-the-art engineered wood products such as cross-laminated timber (CLT). The graduate will undertake research into modern timber construction products and connection systems, develop analysis and design procedures for large timber buildings and implement them in a case study building. A scale model of the building will be created for demonstration purposes. Training materials will be developed to disseminate this knowledge within the company.
