52 Whitmore Road (mixed use CLT)

52 Whitmore Road is a 6 storey mixed use development on the south bank of the Regent’s Canal in Hackney. The site, which formerly housed a warehouse, comprises of offices funded by the Shoreditch Trust, a double height photographer’s studio and three duplex flats with roof terraces. The Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) structure was completed in five weeks.

 

Cross-laminated timber is a truly sustainable modern method of construction offering;

  • Cost savings – speed of construction reduces overall programme length which reduces contractors prelims and reduction in overall cost of construction.
  • Time savings – speed of construction provides time savings on programme, an all-dry approach to external enveloping and internal finishes can be adopted, further accelerating on-site construction by eliminating wet trades.
  • Design Flexibility – structural (bi-axial) performance allows design flexibility and architectural freedom.
  • Precision – panels are manufactured, designed and processed using CAD/CAM technology and state-of-the-art CNC panel cutting machines.
  • Structural capabilities – structural capabilities are akin to concrete in material strength, the cross lamination process results in dimensionally stable panels and high in-plan stiffness providing significant robustness.
  • The CLT structure can be left exposed as a highly aesthetic internal finish.
