Cost and Time Savings
CLT (Cross-Laminated Timber) represents a growing trend in North America. The environmental impact is far less than traditional concrete, it’s more cost effective and the aesthetic is incredibly appealing to builders and occupiers. But the exposed wood ceilings create sound issues that require a superior flooring solution.
RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) residence hall architects NADAAA knew that CLT was the right approach for design students. However, this was their first CLT project. A USG competitor suggested a rubber mat to address sound issues. But the product was too heavy and expensive. They decided to work with USG to deliver a sound flooring solution.
