Timber Cladding: NORclad Siberian Larch – B Grade

A specification was created alongside the architects, utilising an FSC-certified NORclad Siberian Larch in B Grade.

This grade of material allows for a fair spread of knots, adding character and warmth to the large front elevation of the School.

NORclad supplied a combination of 45 x 45mm, and 20 x 145mm PSE boards to create some depth along the elevation, with some larger fins around the main entrance to the building.

Untreated, the Siberian Larch will naturally weather down over time to a silver grey, with well thought out details and design the façade is likely to weather relatively evenly and uniformly.

This project called for a high level of detail and the end result looks professional, modern and inviting.

The materiality was carefully considered: warm Siberian Larch timber provides a softened, dynamic façade at the front juxtaposed with durable brick in Timanfaya Blue at the rear. As the timber weathers over time, it will lend itself even more by gradually blending in with the brick’s established silvery patina
