A new comprehensive guide on Nail-Laminated Timber (NLT) with detailed expert advice is now available for Canada’s design and construction community. Nail-Laminated Timber (NLT) Canadian Design and Construction Guide, the first manual of its kind, combines design, construction, and fabrication expertise from built projects into an easy to use reference. Co-edited by architecture firm Perkins+Will and structural engineering firm Fast + Epp, the free guide provides inspiration and direction to ensure safe, predictable and economical use of NLT, including practical strategies and guidance with lessons learned.
