Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI) is a hub and a meeting space for low carbon innovation and technology. The Centre wanted the building itself to set an example of building sustainably.
Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) has been used in the Centre's framing and roofing elements. The timber frames made of Kerto LVL are flexible to design and fast to install. Metsä Wood can offer exceptional timber frame solutions.
The strength and stiffness of

Kerto LVL Q-panels on the other hand has more uniform strength properties giving balanced capacity for varying load combinations.
ECCI is the first historic building to be awarded a BREAAM “Outstanding” rating. BREEAM is the UK construction industry’s leading sustainability assessment method and considers elements such as waste, pollution, land use and ecology, materials, management, health & wellbeing, energy and transport in grading new buildings.
