Hybrid Expertise on Show at Offsite Expo
The UK has a magnificent heritage of timber architecture dating back to the thirteenth century – the team at B&K Structures are now building on this legacy by developing ground-breaking offsite manufactured hybrid timber and steel systems. Their progressive and sustainable offsite approach reduces environmental impact and improves build quality.
Offsite Expo 24-25 September, Ricoh Arena, Coventry
Experts from B&K Structures will be available on stand A17 at Offsite Expo to offer advice on achieving the best possible sustainable structural solutions. Advise extends to attaining the optimum acoustic properties, thermal insulation and environmental credentials using engineered timber as part of a hybrid system.
As Offsite Expo silver sponsors, B&K Structures are creating one of the feature builds - an innovative Masterclass Theatre developed from cross laminated timber (CLT) which will host the event’s inspiring seminar programme. Speakers from all aspects of the offsite arena will present CPD accredited masterclasses ranging from architects and designers to manufacturers, engineers, developers and project managers, all offering different angles and insights into the offsite industry.
Orsman Road – A Flagship Commercial Space
Amongst these speakers, Managing Director of B&K Structures Andy Goodwin will be presenting a case study on their widely acclaimed 6 Orsman Road project. Recently shortlisted for the 2019 Structural Timber Awards across multiple categories, the hybrid six-storey building effortlessly showcases the benefits of engineered timber technology and light steel frame. B&K Structures once again collaborated closely with timber advocates, Waugh Thistleton Architects to offer an innovative solution for this challenging commercial build. The project called for a structural solution which would maximise space and achieve a rapid construction programme. Developed in line with Hackney’s Timber First policy, delegates can discover more about this pioneering project at Offsite Expo in Masterclass Theatre 1 at 16.15 on 24th September in the Hybrid Masterclasses.
Through careful design detailing and value engineering, B&K Structures is able to offer the best possible offsite manufactured construction solutions, ensuring a smooth integration for follow-on trades – delivering award winning, environmentally and sustainable projects on time and to budget.
