The project will showcase low carbon, circular solutions in building and living during the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow this October.
Chris King, Managing Director at MEDITE SMARTPLY said: “We are delighted to be part of this project that will help demonstrate the boundless opportunities for sustainable timber based solutions in construction. Actions speak louder than words, and this building encapsulates MEDITE SMARTPLY’s commitment to building a more sustainable future.
“The products and systems for fighting the climate emergency are already available. We in the construction industry have not only the opportunity but the responsibility to put theories into action and show the world how we can build and live sustainably, using timber and ecologically responsible solutions.”
The one-bedroom house will be built on a 10m x 5m footprint. It has been designed to use homegrown C16 Spruce to avoid the need for imported timber, and the construction is based on a 1.2m grid to be easily panelised and prefabricated.
