Dalston Lane is a new project in the Hackney region of London. CLT was selected as a primary building component due to its weight reduction over concrete. Poor soil conditions combined with existing underground development made CLT a perfect fit for modern, green, in-fill architecture. The building is 10 stories tall with 9 of them out of CLT. The project will use over 3,500m^3 of European timber, locking up 2,400 tonnes of carbon while providing housing for 121 units.
The project team consists of a set of local UK superstars in modern construction including Ramboll Engineering, Waugh Thistleton Architecture, and Regal Homes.
The 33m tall timber complex is set to be completed by the end of 2015. How many more timber towers will we see before the end of the year?
