Winner 2023

Award for
the development of a novel timber-concrete-composite solution in high-rise residential design 

Project Description

Standing 21 floors tall, HAUT is one of the tallest timber-hybrid buildings in the world. It was the first residential project in the Netherlands to be certified BREEAM Outstanding. To engineer this bio-based high-rise residential building, a team of specialists delivered sustainable, structural and technical design as well as incorporating acoustics and fire engineering, in the building.

Judge’s comments

Utilising timber as a main structural material in this 73m high-rise residential building was a strong driver in the reduction of embodied carbon. The use of bespoke precast timber hybrid floorplates is a potentially important step in the normalisation of these techniques and has the potential to benefit timber projects globally.

HAUT was certified BREEAM Outstanding – an acknowledgement awarded to only a handful of high-rise residential buildings globally, and the first residential project in the Netherlands to achieve this sustainability certification. The successful construction of this project has demonstrated the feasibility of a timber hybrid high-rise, benefiting timber structure industries globally.
