Project: Churchwood Gardens
Architects: Bryden Wood Architects
Client: Loromah Estates
Project Programme: 2016 – Ongoing (as of May 2018)
Product: Canadian Western Red Cedar Timber Cladding & Blue Label Certigrade Shingles
Approximately 24km of Canadian Western Red Cedar has been suppled for this project so far in London, a new build development of 9 blocks, each containing multiple apartments, with undercroft parking. The proposed development incorporates many energy-saving features, including photovoltaic cells and ground source heat pumps.
Untreated Canadian Western Red Cedar cladding from NORclad will weather off to a silver grey appearance over time, and settle into the surrounding area. The same species was selected, this time not to be machined into a T&G cladding, but as Blue Label WRC Certigrade Shingles. These will also weather down in time, some of the colour change is already visible on southern elevations.
Canadian Western Red Cedar is a favourite to specify with architects and clients, the high quality of timber both visually with the minimal knot content, along with the natural durability the species make it a popular choice where and untreated softwood timber cladding is required.
