STRUCTURAL TIMBER AWARDS 2021: PAVILION

6th of October 2021

IQL Pavilion in Stratford is the overall winner at the Structural Timber Awards 2021.
Split over three floors, the Pavilion is an extremely lightweight timber structure that sits on top of a DLR tunnel with limited allowances for additional weight or foundations. Constructed using cross-laminated and glue-laminated timber panels, only shallow concrete foundations were needed. Timber has a much lower carbon footprint than more traditional materials and provides warmth and tactility to the interior. 

"Sustainable timber buildings are not only the optimal way of reaching zero carbon targets but are also aesthetically and structurally outstanding.”
Andrew Carpenter, Chief Executive of the Structural Timber Association 


ON SITE: SWANSEA ARENA

Due to open its doors in early 2022, this multi-purpose 3,500-capacity indoor arena, to be operated by the Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG), will bring a wide variety of live entertainment to Swansea including music, comedy, theatre and e-sports.
