Private Residence, West Sussex

A two-storey private residential home in Pulborough, West Sussex. The first floor walls and roof are constructed of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) with composite steel beams and metal decking at ground and a reinforced concrete basement below. Working for KLH, Price & Myers carried out the design and detailing of the CLT structure. Careful detailing was required as all of the internal CLT walls and underside of the roof structure remain exposed. The complicated roof shape is formed of triangular pieces of CLT which span the width of the building. Connections between the panels are hidden with plugged screws and cranked steel angles and timber wedges above the CLT panels transfer the forces.

Completed 2014.
