Helsinki, Finland –

Stora Enso winner of Timber Trade Journal Award


Stora Enso Building and Living has won the coveted Achievement in Engineered Timber Award at this year’s Timber Trade Journal (TTJ) Awards in the United Kingdom. The award is in recognition of the complex cross-laminated timber (CLT) engineering solution in the construction of Bridport House, an eight-storey social housing building in the London Borough of Hackney. 


According to the TTJ award judges, Bridport House has contributed greatly to furthering the advance of cross-laminated timber in UK construction.


“Bridport House was the main project when launching our CLT into UK markets. Bridport presented several difficult challenges which we were able to overcome with CLT, and we worked closely in Bridport with specialist timber contractor Eurban, whose in-depth knowledge of CLT engineering provided a perfect complement for Stora Enso’s high quality wood products,” says Wayne Probert, UK Sales Manager, Stora Enso Building Solutions.


Bridport House has been in use since 2011 and achieved excellent feedback not only from the residents, but also from architects, city representatives and contractors. Altogether some 1,600 m3 of CLT was used in the structure of the residential building, which has 41 units. The Achievement in Engineered Timber Award, judged by an independent panel of industry experts, was presented on Friday 14 September 2012.
