Södra Wood recently helped London Metropolitan University undergraduate students by sponsoring the architecture students’ Timber workshop at The Cass.
The construction workshop is an annual event for the School of Architecture. Each year, 2nd year architecture students travel offsite to Mudchute Park and Farm, where they get the opportunity to learn more about working with natural construction materials.
This year, the timber materials were kindly donated by Södra Wood, who was keen to help the future generation of architects.
Jeremy English, Sales Director at Södra Wood, comments: “We’re really pleased to be able to help with this workshop. Timber is something we are passionate about – it is fast becoming the construction material of choice, enabling quick, versatile, efficient and sustainable construction. It’s brilliant to see the future generation of architects working with wood and getting first-hand experience of the many benefits that it has to offer the construction environment.”
George Fereday, Senior Lecturer at The Cass, London Metropolitan University, adds: “Thank you to Södra Wood for sponsoring our workshop this year, it is something the students really enjoy every year. It is a great way for the students to learn how to work with the materials and gain valuable skills needed for their future careers, and it also allows them to fully immerse themselves in working with natural materials. We are pleased to know that our materials this year have come from a really sustainable timber source.”
