Innovative Ideas for a better tomorrow - Timber Design Manual.
Innovation and transformation is the key to a successful and a better tomorrow. Based on the changes which are ongoing, here is the latest and modern way of innovating houses. The service is none other than building the houses with Timber. We at Silicon Engineering Consultants LLC provide you with the service where the complete structure of the project is designed with the help of Timber material.
Mass Timber Building | Nail Laminated Timber (NLT)
The entire service of mass timber building is based on its various stages and level that needs to be followed strictly. The core reason for this is to deliver the service as per the need and expectations of our elite clients’. While undertaking this level of work, it is NLT that is indeed created for the fastening of individual dimensional lumbers that have a specific size stacked on the edge. The defined dimensional lumber is 2*4, 2*6,2*8,2*10, or 2*12.
Moving ahead, it is being used on the floors, decks, and roofs. The NLT panels are the one that is used for heavy timber elevator and for stair shafts. Also, it is the service that offers high consistency and attractive appearance used for decorative and exposed applications. Hence, with this said, outsource your project of Mass Timber Construction with us with the guarantee of 100% accurate and precise delivery of the work.
Mass Timber Building|Glue-laminated Timber (glulam)
Mass Timber Building is incomplete without following the process of Glue-laminated Timber (glulam). Glulam is the set of individual wood laminations that is composed, selected with the specification, and poisoned completely on the baste of the performance characteristics. This is the stage where the timber is bonded together and it is only possible with the help of durable as well as moisture-resistant glue or adhesives. Here the process of lamination runs parallel with the size and length of the members of this timber.
The use of Glulam is being used in horizontal applications as like in a beam, or vertically as that of a column. Glulam is the type of timber that has a great amount of strength and properties of stiffness. This is indeed stronger than steel. It is available and has the widest range of grades with regards to the appearance of structural or architectural applications.
Mass Timber Building | Cross-laminated Timber (CLT)
CLT is a type of timber that has engineered wood panel, which is ideally consisting of three, five or seven layers of dimensional lumber that is very much oriented and measured at the right angles and are glued with one another. This is the form of the structural panel that has and comes with exceptional stamina, strength, stability, and rigidity.
It is the CLTs’ structural properties and the stable dimensions, that has made the use of mass timber product well suited for floors, walls, and roofs used in mid-rise and tall wood construction. Also, the form of CLT is used as the prefabricated building components that can increase and speed up the entire construction work as well as allow for off-site construction.
Mass Timber Building| Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL)
We are the leading BIM outsourcing company that delivers accurate and efficient Mass Timber Buildings, and Mass Timber Construction services to its clients in the USA, and globally. The process of mass timber is incomplete without following the LVL level. LVL stands for Laminated Veneer Lumber. It is the form of the timber that is made up of dried softwood veneers and is bonded together with glue so that its direction is parallel and is for a longer time.
LVL has a very high amount of strength and weight ratio in which the process of choosing LVL columns, beams, and lintels are taken into consideration for its changes in the form of dimension lumber or glulam for headers, beams, and columns. Some of the use of LVL include I-joist, trusses, planks, studs, prefabricated wood, and others. Thus with this said, to outsource your Mass Timber Building project, your one-stop destination is Silicon Engineering Consultants LLC
Mass Timber Building| Dowel - Laminated Timber (DLT)
The only wood and the mass timber product is Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT). The use of it can at the time of construction be for floor, walls, and roof structure. It is the Hardwood dowels that are being used for the friction fit pre-milled boards and is together on the edge of it for the creation of the panels that are efficient for horizontal spans and which allows the flexibility for architectural engineering services.
Without the use of metal fasteners, the panels here can be easily processed and used by the CNC machinery that helps in creating a high tolerance panel that contains pre-integrated material and service details and interfaces.
Nowadays with the change in the idea and designs, the construction of buildings, houses, apartments are been made with the help of timber materials. We all would not deny the statement that innovation is indeed an age-old tradition and culture that is been adapted by each one of us. Having said this let us proceed further and know about the process of these services.

Some of the types of “Timber” services.
The latest services of using timber in construction are very much in demand in certain states and cities in the USA and UK. This level of constructions is nowadays very much trending and also worth the value. Having said this let us take a journey to some of the basic services that actually is playing an important role.
- Timber Frame Shop Drawings: This is the stage where the initial set up of the drawings and designs is been prepared. We at Silicon Engineering Consultants LLC provide you with this first step where your ideas and thoughts are converted into paper drawings which are called 2D shop drawings. Here post the discussion with the client the designer starts the drawings and that is what is called timber frame shop drawing services.
- Structural Timber Design: Whenever there is any design been drawn by the engineer and the draftsmen, the next very thing which is done is creating the structure of the project. We have a team who understand the importance and therefore based on the design provides you with the best design of your project based on the discussion. This is the stage where civil engineers work on it and their involvement is a must.
- Timber Frame Architect Design: Here comes the service where the design and drawings are given the view of reality and the actual construction starts. We at Silicon Engineering Consultants LLC provide you with this service in detail and from start, till the end, the team is available if there is any updates of details required for the project.
- Mass Timber Building: This is the service that is indeed very cost-effective and is used more at the time of construction. With the change in the time and codes, this is the new category of building systems. With the usage of the wood in the construction of buildings, apartments, or offices, the engineers make sure that they follow all the international codes that makes the work easy and accurate. The designer and the developer can use this advantage and get benefits in the stability, aesthetics, and efficiency in construction as well. Thus, this is also one of the services that give construction efficiency that is been offered by mass timber.
- Timber Shop Drawings: Shop Drawings is the service where the designs and ideas are been designed graphically which depicts the model and the structure of how it looks like. Well, in any project a full set of construction drawings is required so that it becomes easy for the drafters to understand those designs and start their work. Since it is the service which we call as 2D drawings, the same is then converted into 3D models for a better result and 360-degree view of the project.
Hence, with this said for having a better tomorrow Mass Timber Buildings are one of the greatest as well as better innovative ideas to make things easy, fast, accurate, and reliable. To get in touch with us you can email us or call us, and the team would be right at your service.
