Futurebuild LVL TCC Floors

Futurebuild LVL Timber Concrete Composite (TCC) Floors represent a move to optimise the advantages of both Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) beams and a concrete screed/slab, combined using defined and tested connection methods to provide composite action.

There are many benefits to using LVL in Timber Concrete Composite floors, and Futurebuild offer specification literature and software (for engineers) to assist in the design and specification of TCC floors with Futurebuild LVL.
