School for sustainability


It's one thing to talk about durability and reusability of materials, but actually putting that into practice requires more commitment. It is something that Craig White of White Design Associates takes seriously and, in the design for a new school in Sheffield, he is eager to reuse glulam beams from a school that is being demolished in Hull.Although those glulam beams are 40 years old, they are still in good condition, a tribute to the durability of the material.White is working with structural engineer Carl Bro, which is looking at using composite action between the concrete slabs and the glulam beams for the floor construction.
