RHS Garden Bridgewater

In October 2015, it was announced that the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) would create a 156-acre garden in Worsley, close to the city of Manchester. The RHS is a British charity whose aim is to promote the art of gardening. In the so-called 'Welcome Building' both Cross laminated timber and Glued laminated timber will be used. The Glued laminated timber ceiling construction, which will remain visible in the finished state, impresses with its extraordinary surface quality.
