Project 'RHS Garden Bridgewater - Welcome Building' Finalist at the 2020 Structural Timber Awards

‘RHS Garden Bridgewater - Welcome Building’ has been shortlisted as a finalist in the category 'Project of the Year' in the 2020 Structural Timber Awards. In November 2015, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) announced the vision to create the new garden at the site of the 154-acre Worsley New Hall estate. RHS Garden Bridgewater is the largest gardening project in Europe and will be a major new tourism and horticultural destination which aspires to welcome and inspire up to 700,000 people a year within a decade.

 

The ‘Welcome Building’ has been delivered by BAM as the main contractor with HESS TIMBER providing the engineering, production and assembly of the structural timber elements. The roof structure of the ‘Welcome Building’ consists of three different timber construction components: “cigar-shaped” glued laminated timber columns, timber diagrid cassettes with diagonally arranged inner grillages and straight outer glued laminated timber rafters as well as cross laminated timber panels to tie the cassettes together.
