… it supplies me nice excitement to help the 1st ever booklet to particularly deal with the world of study, and specifically its dating with perform, within the self-discipline of architectural technology…not purely flooring breaking since it is the 1st publication of its type, but additionally since it presents in the end one of many authorized foundations had to underpin the rising educational self-discipline, specifically a recognized study base.
CIAT, in helping this book, knows the necessity for books reminiscent of this to maintain the method of analysis educated perform, as an relief for either scholars and people working towards in the self-discipline of architectural technology.

All timber used was FSC certified and the majority of suppliers were from within a two mile radius of the site. Three types of insulation were used: hemp, Rockwool batts and expanded ­polystyrene sheet. All are low embodied energy or negative carbon materials. Upper wall cladding was either locally sourced sweet chestnut rain screen or zinc longstrip, which was also used for the roofing. The zinc was chosen because of its long life, appropriateness to the form and its nonpolluting effect on recycled ­rainwater.
