Project in focus: Bierton and Guildford Crematoria

UPDATE – Please note the event starts at 12.30pm on Wednesday 16 December. Join our latest Project in Focus talk, where we go behind the scenes of notable projects our members have been working on.

In this event, Henry Stone (Senior Engineer at Elliott Wood) and Tom Gibb (Partner at Haverstock Architects) will reveal the architecture and engineering behind two award-winning crematoria projects that recently completed: Bierton Crematorium and Guildford Crematorium. They will discuss the key design principles behind elegant, modern crematoria and how form is balanced with function.

Both crematoria include extensive exposed and geometrically complex timber structure, which has necessitated a keen eye for details and presented interesting design challenges. A great deal of attention was placed on the experience of the visitors and the design of the landscaping, floor plan layouts and “flow” of visitors through the building, internal finishes and various other aspects have been designed to achieve a peaceful visitor experience while maximising the number of services which can be conducted per day.

Date: Wednesday 16 December
Time: 12:30-13:30
