Architect: Hawkins\Brown

For: Hilden Grange Prep School

The prefabrication of the building in CLT ensured the speed of the build, a reduction in disruption to the school as a whole as well as providing a sustainable and sophisticated learning environment that expresses the materials and construction.

Detailed finite analysis of the timber structure and in depth knowledge of CLT construction were used to model the building and finesse the detail to remove unneeded ties to pitch roofs and superfluous structure to create an elegant solution.
