Cross Laminated Timber - Insulating and Achieving Airtightness - London

This new half-day course on CLT is likely to be very popular, so book now to avoid disappointment!

Cross Laminated Timber construction has seen a vast increase in popularity in recent years and is providing a welcome shift from energy intensive traditional construction such as masonry and steel. Projects are diverse and widespread throughout the UK from multi-storey residential buildings in London to affordable housing projects on the Isle of Mull.

The UK is now in a unique position to capitalise on the success and momentum of these builds with more ground-breaking CLT projects completed and planned across various sectors including commercial, residential and educational.

The course is delivered by experienced trainers Fintan Wallace and Ilias Igoumenidis of Ecological Building Systems.

Ecological Building Systems are longstanding Green Register partners, experts in natural wood fibre insulation, incorporating intelligent airtightness and windtightness solutions as well as specialist fixing systems, focusing on how best to optimise the design and on-site delivery of truly high performance mass timber constructions.

About the trainers

Fintan Wallace: Architectural Technologist at Ecological Building Systems.

Graduating from Dublin Institute of Technology in 2011 with a B.Sc (Hons) in Architectural Technology, it was here in D.I.T’s Bolton Street where Fintan developed a strong interest in low energy and Passivhaus design. From here he continued his studies becoming both a Certified European Passivhaus designer and tradesperson.

Fintan has travelled to Baden Württemberg in Germany to study passive housing and sustainable energy technology, gaining significant knowledge regarding the use of natural insulations in timber frame and solid wall constructions. Latterly Fintan has been involved extensively in a deep energy retrofit of a property to the Enerphit standard in the west of Ireland.

Ilias Igoumenidis: Technical Support Engineer at Ecological Building Systems.

Born and raised in Greece, Ilias graduated from the Polytechnic school of Civil Engineers of Patras University and for many years ran his own Design and Construction company prior to moving to the UK. Since 2013, he has been heavily involved with low energy consumption in building projects. He was the first person in the Hellenic Passive House Institute to gain the International Certification of a Certified Passive House Designer. Ilias played a significant part of the first Certified Passive House project [Enerphit] in the south eastern Mediterranean area “Passivistas”.
