The paper describes the design and construction of the roof and supporting structures to the Savill Building. The structure is a timber gridshell, a technique described in detail in previous papers1,2. The timber for the Savill Building was harvested from the surrounding woodland. The form of the roof was derived from a simple geometric shape; the analysis and design checks were carried out using the Eurocode.

Construction details and process, which developed from the techniques established on earlier buildings, are described.
