Brettstapel, or as it is increasingly being called in the UK, ‘Dowellam’, is a versatile solid wood structural panel system which can be manufactured using UK grown softwoods.

The recently completed extension to the Natural Resources Wales’ visitor centre at Coed y Brenin near Dolgellau is the first example of this system in the UK using homegrown timber.  It is considered to be a paradigm by ‘green’ architects.

Woodknowledge Wales invites you to come along to Coed y Brenin to see this new building and to find out more about this innovative project and the lessons learned along the way, as well as hearing about other ways of building using homegrown timber.
