Technical Note ETN-N-5 - 4 pp.; 2018

This Technical Note provides a summary of a recent study that compares the cost of the structural frame of a hypothetical 10-story residential building located in the Pacific Northwest using cross laminated timber (CLT) and cast-in-place reinforced concrete.

The results from this study and cost data for some actual CLT buildings clearly demonstrate that CLT structures cost significantly more than cast-in-place reinforced concrete structures.
