Facade going up on the Black & White Building
We’re excited to see the facade going up on The Black & White Building. This project which we are providing structural and facade engineering services on with Waugh Thistleton Architects for TOG (The Office Group), is one of only a handful of buildings in London to feature both a timber structure and timber facade.
The new six storey office features a Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) frame with a timber curtain wall facade with external timber shading fins.
Our facades team has been responsible for developing facade options and types, designing the curtain walling and creating solar shading, which uses a timber fin design.
To find out more about timber facades you can watch Hugh McGilveray’s presentation on “UK Timber Envelopes: A Global Perspective” presented earlier this month at the Zak Engineered Timber Envelopes conference in London.
