In this week's episode, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has finally revealed its plans for a new office scheme next to the Financial Times building on the Thames. Structural plywood was used to help reduce the carbon footprint of an Oregon office building designed by Lever Architecture for a nonprofit organisation. Training includes both online learning and live demonstrations at CSIC’s Innovation Factory in Hamilton – home to the UK’s only commercial-scale vacuum press for manufacturing cross-laminated and glue-laminated timber components, and a Pilot Insulation Line for trialling new insulation materials. The Strongfloor Timber Concrete Composite system is supported by HASSLACHER NORICA TIMBER’s Glulam, XLam’s CLT & Peikko Group Corporation’s Delta Beam, which shows Strongfloor’s versatility. The visualization presents monthly global temperature anomalies between the years 1880-2021.
