TIMBER IN ARCHITECTURE

One doesn't normally think of warehousing as an environmentally friendly building type, but at Sherwood Energy Village near Nottingham the same specification has been given to all elements of the development.Buildings need to offer long-term performance and not deplete valuable resources.On this storage building, designed by LEDA Environmental for the East Midlands Development Agency, cladding is with British Douglas fir, from certified forests. In addition to its environmental credentials, the material has a warm golden look that will weather to a silvery grey.
