The winners of the 2016 Structural Timber Awards highlight top projects, products and people in structural timber across the UK.
Over 500 leaders and innovators from across the construction industry were at the International Conference Centre, Birmingham, on October 19 for the Structural Timber Awards.
Structural Timber Award judges had looked closely at over 200 outstanding submissions, choosing the 2016 year’s shortlist of entries from the high standard put forward in each category.
Structural Timber Awards ceremony were hosted by television personality Mark Durden-Smith who presented 16 companies with the top awards for outstanding timber industry projects, innovative products and the people promoting excellence in structural timber across the UK.
Sarah Wigglesworth Architects won the Best Education Project for their Mellor Primary School project, and later they were presented with the Judges Choice Award for the highest scoring submission across all of the categories.
Mellor Primary School project
The award was for an extension to the original Mellor Primary School in the form of a ‘tree house’ incorporating a cluster of pitched roof forms, all set on a deck extending out into the landscape. The core structural solution is timber used for its robust, low energy and sustainable properties which reflect the ‘Forest School’ activities and permit the extended building to blend seamlessly in its Green Belt setting.
