Growing the Use of Wood

 

TimberWorks case studies are published by the Timber Trade Federation, as part of its mission to grow the use of wood.  The Federation’s Responsible Purchasing Policy, to which all its members must adhere, has been recognised widely for its rigour and independent audits.  Procuring wood products from a TTF member thus represents ‘Timber you can Trust’.  The Federation also drives continuous improvement, such as its actions to promote accurate product descriptions for plywoods, treated timber products, timber cladding and flooring.  Look for the TTF Responsible Purchasing logo and find a member here.

Right Place, right timber

Making the most of this sunny canal-side location, architects Cullinan Studios converted an original 19th century warehouse office building into a low-energy workspace for their practice, combined with 12 two-bedroom apartments in the other half of the building, which is situated on a south-facing stretch of London’s Regent’s Canal.

 

Falkus Joinery were called upon to provide their expertise with wood in creating timber privacy screens, bespoke stairs and balustrades, fitted kitchens, wardrobes and vanity units, and other elements of the interiors.  Using the right timber species for the right application is part of Falkus Joinery’s skill.  As an example, the Joinery installed a solid Sapele fire-rated ceiling in the communal areas and used Cedar for the external privacy screens.  Solid French Oak was used for the bespoke floating staircases and tall balustrading, while plywood with a veneered French Oak surface, stained a dark brown to give the look of Wenge African hardwood, was utilised in the fitted kitchens.

 

The building was designed to EcoHomes ‘Very Good’ standard during its planning.  The sliding windows and their screens allow residents to passively control the internal environment; the thermal envelope was designed for maximum efficiency, and a ground source heat pump fulfils the renewable requirement.
