Context

The winning project of the 2018 Structural Timber Awards ‘Best Retail & Leisure Project’ and ‘Best Use of Solid Wood’ categories were three Waterside Lodges at Center Parcs Elveden Forest. They have all been built using Metsä Wood’s Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber) for fast, light and green construction.

The construction of the Waterside Lodges at Center Parcs Elveden Forest was an ambitious architectural and engineering project

The lodges were designed to complement the woodland landscape to connect the guests with the surrounding natural environment. Wood was a natural choice of building material, which would blend in seamlessly with the natural forest setting.

Product supplied

Metsä Wood’s Kerto® LVL was sufficiently lightweight to achieve the impressive structure, without needing a considerable amount of foundation works. It has a solid bonded structure, which offers incredible strength and dimensional stability, while its high strength-to-weight ratio allows for smaller spacing in mechanical connections.
