Building in Wood
In the wake of changes to the UK building regulations clamping down on the use of ‘combustible materials’ for tall building façades the use of timber has been seriously undermined - shattering confidence in it at a time when its embodied carbon credentials make it the prime material choice. Waugh Thistleton Architects, pioneers in the use of Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) for residential buildings, are working on the ‘New Model Building’ which overcomes the recent restrictions, and poses an innovative design typology for residential buildings of all types.
