Gabriele Tamagnone
Assistant Professor

Italian transplanted to Hereford, Gabriele has spent the last few years researching cross-laminated timber (CLT) structures and assemblies. Outside university life, he worked as a consultant in structural design with a particular focus on concrete, timber and steel structures.

Gabriele decided to specialise in timber engineering because he believes wood is the answer for structural engineers, to global warming and climate change. Here at NMITE's Centre for Advanced Timber Technology (CATT) he's passionate about utilising wood as a sustainable alternative for building new constructs and embracing its use in sympathetically repairing existing and damaged structures.

At NMITE Gabriele covers the role of Research Fellow at CATT. His main focus is delivering NMITE's 'Living Lab CATT building, which serves to educate and inform built environment professionals through experiential research and active integrated learning techniques - embracing the amalgamation of pioneering building research, industrial engagement and educational development.

Ultimately NMITE's CATT building will showcase the value of timber as a sustainable building material when beautifully crafted with appropriate construction delivery methods.
