Project Name: Acharacle School
Building Type: Education
Location: Acharacle, Ardnamurchan, Argyll.
Architect: Gaia Architects
Project: This new school was built in the playground of the original school. Brettstapel is a solid timber construction system fabricated from softwood timber posts connected with hardwood timber dowels. This relatively simple method of construction does not use glues or nails and can be used to make beautiful, low carbon, healthy buildings that are quick and easy to build. All the timber in the building is untreated, as the types of timber used have been chosen to suit their environment.
Materials Featured: Brettstappel, Glu-lam, Scottish Timber
