In 2003, Eurban became the first to endorse cross laminated timber construction as a high-quality, efficiency-optimised building system in the UK. This followed the use of the material in Switzerland during the 1990s, and its adoption in central Europe slightly later.

Recognising the extraordinary benefits cross laminated timber could offer not only to the construction and design industries, but also to the aesthetics of the built environment, Eurban developed a unique design, manufacture and installation process which now serves a global market.

2003
