Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) construction is a renewable alternative to conventional building materials. Concrete accounts for 8% of the world’s carbon emissions. Conversely, CLT is a mighty tool in the fight for carbon neutrality in our cities. Rather than emitting carbon dioxide, timber construction absorbs it. Grain’s focus on natural, renewable, and planet-friendly materials is key to creating healthier and more sustainable cities.

As a building material CLT opens up a world of possibilities, offering limitless architectural options and a clean, natural look that feels better than traditional construction staples. By gluing multiple layers of solid-sawn timber perpendicular to each other, CLT production creates an incredibly strong and versatile building material that is FSC certified, and sustainably sourced from Ontario forests.
CLT CNC Process
Layers of solid-sawn timber are combined to create a more natural alternative to concrete and steel that is every bit as strong.
Excellence meets automation. Fully automated production lines use SPF lumber from sustainable, local sources to produce CLT.
