The Fitzroy tops out

The Fitzroy in Falmouth has reached its highest point, a milestone marked with a topping out ceremony held on site by the construction team. The project, which started on site in November 2017, uses sustainable cross laminated timber (CLT) construction, which was selected to reduce time on site in the potentially challenging coastal environment. The Fitzroy will be the UK’s first retirement development built using the system, and follows AHMM’s recent CLT work at Alconbury Weald Club, Ermine Street Primary Academy, and Surrey Lane in Wandsworth.
