It is quite a momentous day for Target Five, as our team are onsite at our project in Newland Street, Worthing, as our CLT construction (Cross Laminated Timber carbon sustainable development) has arrived from Austria.
25 tonnes of materials, shipped over on the back of an artic lorry via the fabulous team at Stora Enso. There are 14 packs which are positioned sequentially for the build progress, very much like Meccano but on a mammoth scale! not that we are daunted or anything. This is a first for T5 re: modular building and we are very much learning enormously as we go along with our trusted team and guides at Olive Modular with our PM Tim overseeing.
To the plan then, the main construction will take circa 2 weeks! starting at the rear back gable and working towards the front pavement.
By using a Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), Modular Construction designs and building methods we will be delivering low carbon results with high quality standards compared to traditional methods of constructing developments re: the use of cement and how this impacts CO2.⠀Creating Energy efficient, Environmentally beneficial buildings.
We will keep you updated of course with progress, it’ll be coming thick and fast now!
