Cost and construction speed are typically considered the main value proposition for wood in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and distribution centers. Wood roof systems offer particular value because of both code opportunities and cost savings. Now, mass timber products such as cross-laminated timber (CLT), which offer greater thermal performance and resistance to impact, add to the reasons to consider wood. If you’re designing an industrial project, note that you aren’t limited to Type I and II construction. Type V wood buildings may also have unlimited area for factory and storage occupancies.
