Timber revolution – a comment

9 January 2017

A recent BBC’s video article shows that engineered timber products, be that glulam beams or panels in the form of cross lamented timber, allow the adoption of timber on more and more projects.

Recognising that timber construction and off site fabrication can help address the housing crisis is fantastic, but we must remember that timber can be used in all of our built environment. As such at Integral we assess timber options for all jobs at an early stage to identify where its many benefits can be best leveraged. And for those who feel that timber does not provide longevity we would only take you to see the numerous heritage projects we work on with timber structures hundreds of years old.
