Abstract

This paper summarises the current status of development and research of different structural systems for global lateral stability in Arup. This research is partly based on the results of various projects starting with LifeCycleTower (LCT) research project in 2010, and including the latest development, H7 in Münster, Germany which is currently on site. The knowledge gained from the LifeCycleTower project was subsequently implemented in the project LCT ONE in Dornbirn (Austria) and the project H7, a 7-storey hybrid concrete-timber office building. This paper presents collaboration between Arup and University of Bath and also evaluates the numerous advantages of incorporating timber in a building and outlines Arup's approach to utilise timber structures for the lateral stability buildings.
