Ickburgh School: CLT superstructure

A specialist school for 150 pupils aged between 2-19 years with profound and multiple learning difficulties opened in September 2014 in the London Borough of Hackney.

The building consists of a three storey CLT superstructure made from PEFC certified Austrian spruce and pine sourced and manufactured by Stora Enso Building Solutions which is bonded using formaldehyde-free and environmentally friendly adhesives making it suitable for internal exposure.

Building with CLT provided a significant reduction to the construction programme and the project was delivered 20% faster and provided a 2% saving on cost against the project value. In addition to its speed and cost saving benefits, the structural spanning characteristics of CLT lent itself to the very cellular layout of a Special Needs school.
