Webb Yates Engineers/ Interrobang are hosting an evening event in our offices discussing healthy learning environments and the affect of multidisciplinary design on the mental, physical and social health of its users.

Using an integrated approach to architecture and engineering, where the structure, aesthetics and building performance are designed as one combined strategy, we began working with Penoyre & Prasad on Timber Concrete Composites (TCC) for Wimbledon College of Arts’ New Studio - a striking and flexible creative space achieving a BREEAM outstanding rating.

We built on this experience and developed a composite scheme using TCC floors for the new Kantor Centre of Excellence for the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, shortlisted for the Structural Awards 2019 Sustainability Award and the Structural Timber Awards 2019.

The evening will consist of an informal panel discussion on best practice in sustainable design of education buildings and the latest research into TCC structural components.
