Project: Air Balloon School, Bristol
Main Contractor: Skanska
Completed: 2013 (Revisited 2016)
Timber Species: PEFC-Certified Canadian Western Red Cedar
Over 3 years since the original installation the façade is now well on its way in terms of weathering down. Many elevations have completely weathered, a few areas that are shaded from cills/ overhangs on the building are not quite there yet and still show the original range of colours that WRC is.
The primary profile on this project is our double chamfer NWCC1 board, with NWA1 corner trim detail. Numerous smaller boards and profiles were used to detail around reveals, windows etc.
