Integrated Strategies for the Welsh Timber Industry

Bere:architects initiated and supported the study, Integrated Strategies for the Welsh Timber Industry, compiled by Thomas Bryans. This forms part of the practice's ongoing research into appropriate technologies for a Low Carbon Britain. Interesting lessons have emerged from this study, including the need to have a strategic national plan for the growth of manufacturing, skills and local resources. We also indicate what that plan might include. The lessons learnt are applicable to the whole of the UK, not only Wales, and the work is ongoing, but would be assisted by outside funding and further support.
