WGME speaks with Shaler about building with cross-laminated timber

WGME (Channel 13 in Portland) talked with Steve Shaler, a University of Maine professor of sustainable materials, for a story about construction of a new tower in Westbrook that is being built with cross-laminated timber (CLT). Shaler noted that building with CLT manufactured with lumber from sustainably managed forests decreases a building’s carbon and energy footprint.
