PROJECT SUMMARY

Timber-Link

Interlocking panelized timber building system

Timber-Link uses cross laminated timber (CLT) to form a flexible system of clustered inhabitable cells. Building panels are prefabricated with insulation and cladding installed before assembly, thus expediting erection and reducing the need for skilled labor on site – especially for situations requiring speedy construction such as disaster relief.

The system can be deployed at different scales, configurations, and circumstances. Layouts can vary through stacking and/or telescoping.
