Saving 120 tonnes of CO2

Probably the world’s tallest timber-framed residential building was completed in recent months in the suburb of Hackney, in East London. Stadthaus, part of the Murray Grove Housing Development, stands 29.75 metres high; it has nine storeys, one with shops, three for social housing and five with independently financed apartments. Apart from the plinth, which is of reinforced concrete, the entire building, including the two lift shafts and stairwells, was built of laminated plywood.
