Thermal properties of engineered wood?

I am designing a house and it will use mostly engineered wood, which is
great for avoiding splitting, bowing, warping, etc, etc but how does it do
thermally?

I sent Weyerhaeuser an email a week ago about it, without response.
My guess is that the thermal conductivity is way up on real wood because
of all the glue.

If it does have a high conductivity, how to manage it?  A 6" stud from this
material would probably be a great thermal bridge

Anyone have thermal numbers?

TIA
