A new exhibition in Glasgow is showcasing sustainable offsite-manufactured buildings made from wood.

Supported by Scottish Forestry, engineering and built environment students from Edinburgh Napier University have launched the event, titled Timber Offsite Construction – Sustainable Communities Premanufactured from Wood.

The exhibition, which features in the Lighthouse in Glasgow, will run until mid-January.

Featuring the work of students alongside examples from Carbon Dynamic and CCG, the exhibition explores why most new homes in Scotland are built using timber and its benefits in terms of construction sector jobs, environmentally efficient houses and faster building times.

The exhibition also shares student stories as part of the Built Environment Exchange, a programme established by Edinburgh Napier University to ‘accelerate change in construction culture’.
