The climate emergency is challenging engineers to consider a broader palette of non-traditional and/or novel structural materials.
The Novel materials series explores how engineers can approach both design and construction with these materials in mind, and it offers practical advice on what to consider to utilise them successfully within projects.
As the research on timber continues to generate innovative ways to use this renewable material, in this webinar:
Ishan Abeysekera, Senior Engineer at Arup, delves into best practices in the use of both engineered and reused timber, whilst also exploring common challenges that require further investigation.
Colin Rose, Researcher at UCL and Strategic Advisor at ReLondon, shares shares his findings on using wood from demolition in mass timber products.

Engineers working with timber
James worked on a wide variety of projects and has designed in a variety of materials, including steel, concrete, timber, earth, straw and glass. In 2015, James moved full-time into academia, where he teaches structural design with a focus on low-carbon solutions. He has co-written Conceptual Design of Buildings and Designing Timber Structures.
Ishan is a Senior Engineer in Arup’s Advanced Technology and Research Department helping find solutions to Arup’s most challenging technical problems. He is an expert in Timber Engineering and also specialises in Existing Buildings, Structural Dynamics and Advanced Analysis.
Dr Colin Rose is an architect, Senior Research Fellow at UCL, Strategic Advisor and Partnership Lead for the Built Environment at ReLondon, and founding partner of UK CLT LLP. At UCL, he leads circular economy research investigating the reuse of secondary timber. He is the winner of Ramboll’s Flemming Bligaard Award 2020.
