Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) and Kerto LVL roofing elements have been used for framing of Edinburgh Center for Carbon Innovation (ECCI). The timber frames made of Kerto are flexible to design and fast to install. Metsä Wood can offer exceptional timber frame solutions. The strength and stiffness of Kerto LVL S makes it an ideal for bending stressed structures. Kerto LVL Q 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.
