The timber transfer truss at Peterborough University Technical College is installed.

Our design for the large open space at the heart of PUTC is emerging with the installation of the feature timber truss. The truss supports two storeys of long span timber rib slabs. The rib slabs will have an interesting design feature whereby the strengthening ribs stop short of the supports. The design of the slabs will be subject to a Cambridge University full scale test this summer – the idea being that future slabs will be further optimised using the results of the load testing.
