UK’s Environment Minister Trudy Harrison visits Concept Lab

August 28, 2023

We were delighted to have UK’s Environment Minister Trudy Harrison visit our R&D hub, Concept Lab. In her role as Environment Minister, she is looking to expand the adoption of timber as a building material in the UK where block and stone have long been used as the primary building materials.  Since mass timber construction typically uses prefabricated components, increasing adoption can help to reduce construction site waste, time, and errors, while creating striking and more environmentally friendly buildings.  We hope our discussions about timber construction can lead to the wider adoption of engineered timber in the UK over the next decade.
