Meadowcroft Griffin Architects and KLH UK

Meadowcroft Griffin‘Is Sustainability a Reality? We Look to Our Past to Preserve our Future’

Tuesday 18 Sept, 8.30am – 10.30am

Join KLH UK and Meadowcroft Griffin Architects for a discussion based breakfast seminar challenging how we view sustainability: not just as a nice-to-have tick list item, but as a real solution that makes sense in both economic and social terms; from prefabrication factory to built award winning solutions.

Confirmed speakers include Ann Griffin, Director Meadowcroft Griffin Architects and Nic Clark, Managing Director of KLH UK, who comes from 23 years in the construction industry.


Key issues:
- Timber is the oldest construction material with world wide examples of inspiring buildings and impressive sequestered carbon characteristics, but is not yet recognised as the go to material of choice: Who is afraid of Timber construction?
- We will be exploring why timber is seen as a risky solution and how KLH’s pre-fabricated cross lamination overcomes these concerns, along with case study examples of recent projects by Meadowcroft Griffin Architects to show how this versatile timber panel system can achieve a wide range of innovative yet practical solutions, including our award winning Lauriston School with an Olympic pool worth of sequestered carbon; capsule school extension blocks which achieve drastically reduced site time; and the recent shortlisted Smart Home competition scheme that creates a demountable and easily-extendable, Flexi housing model.

Location: KLH Offices, 7–9 Woodbridge Street, EC1R 0LL
