A case study & CLT Masterclass

2.15 pm – 3.00 pm: CLT Masterclass - book here.

Join us for a half day seminar about Bridport House, the eight storey cross-laminated timber (CLT) residential project soon to complete at Hackney’s Colville Estate and a Masterclass by Eurban on how to design and construct with CLT.

This project pushes the boundaries of timber engineering in order to overcome the challenges of a difficult site. It explores the way in which the design process can be enhanced by giving a voice to the end-user and demonstrates the benefits of CLT such as carbon sequestration, speed of construction and precision engineering.

Specialist timber engineer Eurban will be presenting a Masterclass on how to design with CLT across a range of different building types and building systems. Starting with the basic principles of design, the session will also examine areas of interface with other elements of structure and services and will explore some of the latest design innovations being developed.
