Lyons O’Neill recently facilitated a site visit to Sutton Secondary School: the UK’s largest school constructed from Cross Laminated Timber and to Passivhaus standard, the international standard for low energy design. The live site visit took place yesterday and was organised by Croydon Constructing Excellence Club in conjunction with KLH UK.
The additional 4 storeys on top of the Derry’s department store in Plymouth are well underway with the new courtyards and infill areas also taking shape. Lyons O’Neill worked hard to prove that the existing foundations were adequate to accept this new load, eliminating the need for additional expensive foundations. Read more here :
