The development is one of a number of buildings in the Hackney area that has pioneered the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) in its construction and the walking tour will take in a number of award-winning buildings including Murray Grove, Dalston Lane and half a dozen more.

Hackney Council was the first local authority in England to promote timber construction through its ‘Wood First‘ planning policy.
