The starting point for every project at Waugh Thistleton is always to consider the brief alongside the building’s cultural, social and historical context.
Working as a team, in close collaboration with clients, consultants, contractors, and all other stakeholders the result is a responsive, original and intelligent architecture.
The ‘Largest’ Timber Building in the World is Topping Out
The ‘largest’ timber building in the world is about to top out; 10 storeys of CLT (cross laminated timber) structure is about to be completed. The structure contains a massive 33,000 m2 of timber, which saves 4000 tonnes of carbon dioxide in comparison to traditional concrete construction. A private ceremony is due to be held in August to celebrate the completion of this innovative structure. When completed the building will create 121 new homes and 35,000 square metres of office space.
