Project focus: Scandinavian Methods of Construction in Scotland

This paper presents the Scandinavian prefabricated timber and precast concrete methods of construction used to deliver the £120m Aberdeen 3Rs Schools PPP project. In particular the paper concentrates on the construction detailing of the glulaminated timber, the timber stressed skin panels and the precast concrete sandwich panels which facilitate rapid completion of a weather tight shell.
