Wood is fast and efficient to build with

Mass timber construction components are typically prefabricated offsite which can provide a significant reduction in onsite construction time. A major advantage in using timber rather than wet pour concrete is the elimination of set and dry times, reducing the construction program and allowing other trades to begin work soooner.

This sequence of still images charts the construction of a pioneering building in Shoreditch, North London. The structure is fabricated entirely from cross-laminated timber panels.
