Arup Associates wins Best Use of Timber prize at the Offsite Awards 2015

The Believe in Better Building project by Arup Associates was awarded the Best Use of Timber prize yesterday at the Offsite Awards 2015 in London.

The category, sponsored by the CTI, rewarded the exemplar use of timber in projects across any UK construction sector. Including cross laminated timber (CLT), glulam, timber frames, SIPS ans associated open and closed panel systems, the winning project used timber as a major factor in delivering quality, factor-controlled, robust and sustainable offsite manufacture.

Remarkably, the same category included The Cube Building by Engenuiti, awarded the Offsite Awards 'Winner of the Winners' prize. The project represents a mirable example of a hybrid residential building which combines solid CLT and steel structure with an innovative design.
