TG Escapes Eco Buildings to Inspire

Biography

Working in structural engineering for the past decade, Chris has accumulated a wealth of experience in Modern Method of Construction, especially in timber. In the early years, Chris was lucky to work with a variety of timber frame and SIPs manufacturers while he wrote a paper entitled: Retrofitting UK housing stock to Passivehaus. He also produced a confidential report on improving the creep coefficient of SIPs panels providing a competitive edge.

The challenge of cross-laminated timber then led him away to work at the largest private construction company in the UK. It is here he worked on Orsman Rd the tallest timber hybrid structure in the UK and featured in the Structural Timber Magazine. He was also part of the successful tender team for the new Google headquarters in London, set to be one of the largest timber building in the world.

He joined TG Escapes utilising his knowledge and expertise to help them deliver their futuristic vision of Biolphillic, Carbon Neutral, Timber Schools, through the latest Sectional Modular techniques; which he is currently writing a research paper on at this moment in time.
