We are excited to reveal the first CLT panel at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville (UARK)'s Library Storage Project! We have partnered with Austrian wood vendor, Binderholz, to bring CLT BBS wood (for the first time in Arkansas) for construction of this project.
CLT BBS is a multilayer construction, completely made of solid wood. By bonding the longitudinal and transverse layers together, any warping of the wood - swelling or shrinkage - is reduced to a negligible level. This means it can comfortably meet the requirements of a modern building material. The solid finished component is able to carry high loads, is fireproof, enables rapid construction without water, and has sound and heat insulating properties. It regulates the humidity of the air inside the building, creating a comfortable and balanced climate - in both summer and winter.
Building our University. Building Arkansas. Building the World.
