Freemen's School Swimming Pool wins at the Structural Timber Awards 2018


City of London Freemen’s School Swimming Pool was named Education Project of the Year at last night’s Structural Timber Awards. This follows earlier successes in the RIBA Awards, where the project picked up several regional awards and an RIBA National Award.

The building houses a 25-metre, six-lane swimming pool inside a Glulam and CLT structure. Our other recent timber structures include the Vitsoe HQ & Production Building, and the Hands Building for Mansfield College, Oxford, which was shortlisted in the same category.

Toby Ronalds, Eckersley O’Callaghan Director of Structural Engineering, said “This award is the result of a hugely successful collaboration between the whole design team and a fantastic client. It also reflects on our expertise in using timber to achieve beautiful designs, and our growing portfolio of engineered timber projects.”
