XLam efficient building solutions: The advantages of modern methods of construction.

Mass timber construction (MTC) is both a new building material, using engineered wood products as the primary structural material, and a new construction process under the umbrella of prefabricated construction. MTC is used as a substitute for steel reinforced concrete, solid section tilt-slab concrete, and steel framing. However, more frequently, the use of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is assembled alongside more traditional construction materials.

XLam offers a total solutions package including design, manufacturing, off-site solutions and assembly services. Every project is unique and XLam understands the requirements of a fast, safe and sustainable construction process to ensure efficient delivery.

XLam’s Australian CLT plant is now open.

“XLam is very excited to finally offer the building and construction industry a locally produced treated or non-treated CLT product”, said XLam General Manager Gary Caulfield. “We have made a commitment to the Australian market that the new plant will offer the same great service to our Australian customers.” he said. XLam’s business model includes design, manufacture and installation capacity to deliver comprehensive construction solutions for customers throughout the Asia Pacific region.
