A prestigious project designed to meet BREEAM Excellent, in an area that is becoming a hub for Wales’ dynamic creative sector. A 50 x 150 specially sawn and selected FSC Welsh Larch was used.

NORclad “MicroPro” treatment was used and the product was selected based sustainability, a 30 year Koppers treatment warranty against rot and fungal (out of ground contact) with little or no maintenance required, and other important considerations such as cost and ease of installation. This treatment allows the timber to still naturally weather to a silver/ grey which was desired by the Architects.
