Inside the box: Timber’s role in modular construction

11 June 2024

14:00 -17:00

Explore the theme of reimagine during an insightful panel discussion with timber experts Gareth Davies at Russwood, Rebecca Sawcer at Waugh Thistleton Architects and Matt Stevenson at Ecosystems Technologies. During this expert insight into the future of timber’s relationship with modular design you’ll learn more about how modular construction provides a cost-efficient, reliable, and sustainable alternative to standard construction methods.

As unsustainable construction methods rise as key issues, along with construction costs and housing inequalities, modular design and construction, particularly with timber, offers a clear solution. Timber provides a sustainable, flexible, and cost-effective option which meets the needs of modern architecture and society. With its ability to capture 1 tonne of CO2 per m3 of sawn lumber, it is stark contrast to the 8% of CO2 production worldwide attributed to cement production.

Join us for this free event, held at Arcola Theatre, London, from 2pm - 5pm to discover how using timber can help us work towards building a greener future. Open to all.
