At Tra & Teknik 2016 in Gothenburg saw some fabulous examples of innovative and efficient use of wood in construction... as the Scandinavians know how to do. A bit of kerfing from prototype to reality. Structural timbers with insulating properties. 'Pick-up-sticks' at the speakers stage.
With the roof on, feature cladding near completion, insulation installed and internal linings commenced, the Macleod house is well on the way to completion.
We have been asked to develop a model for a carbon positive classroom. The ideas are rolling... We know timber will be a major contributor to minimising carbon footprint in construction. As will incorporation of renewables and maybe user-generated power... stay tuned!
