Cross-Laminated Timber Modular Housing

12:20 - 12:40

A revolution in UK housing is underway with L&G’s CLT modular housing system.  The process will be a BIM-driven, highly-automated, truly modern, mass-production facility which will contain the UK’s first CLT manufacturing facility.  CADCAM technology will be embraced at a level yet to be seen on these shores to deliver timber homes, houses, apartments etc. from a factory in Yorkshire

The facility will greatly increase the volume of CLT-construction in the UK – a technology which is already well-established, and on an upward trajectory in the residential sector.  Legal & General have embraced the technology because of the capacity to work at scale, creating large, solid, fully-fitted structural modules in a highly sustainable manner.  Craig Liddell will discuss the process and L&G’s commitment to solid timber construction.
