In this webinar, Andrew Waugh, founding director, Waugh Thistleton Architects - a practice well known for being a long-standing advocate of timber as a sustainable alternative to conventional building materials, expands on their goal to design central London’s tallest mass timber office structure, the six-storey Black & White Building.

The Black & White Building is a case study of a ‘boundary-pushing sustainable workspace’. It is powered by 100 per cent renewable energy sources (including 80 PVs on its rooftop) and has over a third less embodied carbon than comparable six-storey structures due to its (mostly) mass-timber construction. It is also designed to be taken apart and re-used elsewhere in the future. This carbon saving amounts to 1,083 tCO2e – equivalent to 4,335 hours of flying in a Boeing 737-400.

Hear how Andrew and his team are determined to champion timber in a post-Grenfell world with the resulting stringent fire regulations and insurance demands.
