Innovating with strand veneer lumber
2 Dec 2020
Is there anything new to discover in using wood for building construction? There’s evidence that people have been building wood structures for some 10,000 years. Has it all been done?
Nope. Washington State University and NRRI submitted a provisional patent application this year for developing thermally modified cross-laminated strand-veneer timber building materials. With Mass Timber construction on the rise because of its sustainability benefits over competing materials, this innovation addresses some of the problems with wood.
