We are proud to have won Highly Commended awards at the Offsite Awards 2018 for both Best Use of Concrete and Best Use of Timber at our Highpoint project!
Our extensive use of prefabrication techniques maximised the advantages of off-site manufacturing in terms of speed, quality control and sustainability. These prefabrication elements included all primary vertical structure to the tower outside the core, comprising solid RC wall panels to the perimeter and twin wall RC panels internally over the full height.
For the accompanying 8-storey terrace block, a product of extensive research into prefabrication and modular construction, we employed cross-laminated timber (CLT) throughout.
It is therefore wonderful for the efforts and innovation of the design team – which also includes Axis Architects and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners – to be acknowledged at the Offsite Awards.
