Wood Talks at Ecobuild presents a case study and masterclass sessions. Future Wood – Cross Laminated Timber

Wood Talks will be at Ecobuild for one day only. Join us for the first look at the groundbreaking Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) multi-storey building currently underway in Hackney at our short talk on Bridport House. For those of you who would like to learn the principles and possibilities for designing with CLT we are offering free Masterclass sessions with specialist timber engineer Eurban. Places are limited so booking is essential.

Bridport House – A multi-storey case study.

An eight storey building constructed entirely from CLT, including the ground floor, is currently under construction in the London Borough of Hackney. This short talk looks at how CLT provided the solution to issues of sustainability, weight, time and cost and in the process is pushing the boundaries of timber engineering.
