Celebrating tomorrow’s timber talent

TRADA’s University Challenge 2020 saw students from across the UK design timber community housing that is low-carbon, energy and water efficient, climate-resilient, healthy and desirable. The winners were announced in February. Six talented students scooped first prize for their timber-based housing scheme design at the TRADA University Challenge 2020. Kyle Crossley from Leeds Beckett University, Ryan Jessop from the University of Hertfordshire, Aslinn Aijian Zha from Cardiff University, Kai Yusaf Chelliah from the University of Bristol, Kat Cookes from the University of Gloucestershire and Aaron Shaw from Sheffield Hallam University overcame nine rival teams to win a cash prize and walk away winners. The competition, which took place 17–19 February, saw 58 students from universities across the UK gather at Cardiff University and compete to design, cost and engineer the best low-carbon, energy and water-efficient timber community housing in less than 48 hours.
