Building with CLT - Cross Laminated Timber
Seminar, by FASTCON LTD
For architects who like to work with wood there is cross laminated timber (CLT): a modern structural element that is ideally suited for use in multi-storey building walls, floors and roofs. CLT’s speed, quality and sustainability also make it popular in education projects. This seminar provides a practical introduction to the material and its benefits.

Fastcon helps architects and developers at the early stages of a project. It provides concept structural design and price calculations based on cross laminated timber. Concept design cost is 10% of the full structural design cost. Choose Fastcon for your full structural design and the 10% will be considered as a down payment.
