Project Presentation: Merkinch Primary School, Inverness
Time: 16:25 - 16:45
This is currently Scotland’s first and only complete CLT (Cross Laminated Timber school), built using CLT and glulam and with a floor area of approx. 4000sqm. This innovative primary school is being built entirely in timber and has a carbon sequestration of nearly 1,400tonnes. This is both a very environmentally conscious and healthy building and on completion will be the largest CLT project (in volume of material) in Scotland. Utilises off-site manufacture, reduces on-site wastage, speeds up installation and the structural timber is of course fully recyclable and biodegradable.
