A Case for Mass-Timber-Hybrid Modular School
Wojciech Niedzwiedz, Senior Building Services Consultant, CREE Buildings

CREE Buildings will present their modular mass-timber-hybrid system, which offers exceptional efficiency thanks to standardization of its components and flexibility for DfMA, yet customizable to unique requirements of each project.

With a key focus on sustainability and wellness in school construction, we will present how to minimise construction waste, and reduce site disturbance by using mass timber-hybrid system. Additionally, we will showcase the integrated cooling and heating solution in the prefabricated elements, which significantly reduces energy consumption, paving the way for net-zero school design.

Learn about an innovative construction approach, which not only addresses the pressing need for educational infrastructure but also contributes to a more efficient, cost effective, and sustainable future.

Aiming low: Designing for very low embodied and operational carbon at Staffordshire University Nursery
Simon Branson, Partner, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios & Iain Shaw, Director, Manchester office leader, Max Fordham LLP

The design for a new onsite nursery for Staffordshire University took the team and the client on a journey to design a low energy, low embodied carbon facility that feels open, natural and connected to the neighbouring woodland.

Simon Branson, Partner at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Ian Shaw, Director at Max Fordham will share how an engaged client and clear communication made the decision to build in timber, commit to reaching net zero carbon and to make a nursery that would be practical and delightful for the children and staff a reality.
