Dalston Lane, the largest CLT development in the world, starts on site

On course to be the tallest building of its kind, Dalston Lane is a 121 unit residential development in Hackney, designed by Waugh Thistleton Architects.  Estimates show that it will use more timber than any other scheme in the world, making it, by volume, the largest CLT project globally.

Ramboll has carried out full structural engineering of the 33m CLT structure, which necessitated the development of bespoke tools, details and techniques, where Ramboll engineers drew on their decade of experience in pushing the boundaries of this dynamic material. Working with specialist timber subcontractor B&K Structures, a series of technical challenges were overcome, to ensure an efficient, buildable and highly coordinated solution.
