Growing interest in mass timber has led to increased use not only of cross-laminated timber, but nail-laminated timber (NLT or nail-lam)—a lesser known but more common material option. NLT is created by fastening pieces of dimension lumber, stacked on edge, into one structural element with nails or screws. It offers a unique aesthetic, flexibility of form, fast erection and a light carbon footprint, and is a cost-effective option for designers looking to expose wood structure. Using lessons learned from real projects, this workshop will provide practical strategies and guidance for the safe, predictable, and economical use of NLT. Discussion will include architectural and structural considerations, envelope and fabrication details, and key information from the Nail Laminated Timber Design and Construction Guide, which was authored by the speakers.
Attendees will qualify for 4 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 4 PDH credits or 0.4 ICC credits.
