Pinewood Structures were involved in supplying the reverse wall timber frame system for this ground breaking scheme. The system used a traditional timber frame type construction but instead of having the sheating on the external face of the timber frame, the sheathing covered the inside face to provide shuttering for the lime/hemp mix. Additionally the internal sheating, instead of being the usual Orientated Strand Board (OSB), Pinewood used magnesium silicate boarding to contain the wet lime mix.
