Project: Herten Triangle, Doncaster
Architect: DLG Architects
Project Completion: 2019
Product: NORclad European Redwood – A-Grade
Treatment: NORclad “Brunnea” Treatment specified to Euro Class B Fire Protection
A specification was created utilising a PEFC-certified NORclad European Redwood. NORclad “Brunnea” treatment was requested to offer a formal warranty on the product for 30 years against rot and fungal decay (out of ground contact), along with a good level of colour stability VS traditional untreated species.
Some element of the build required the Timber Cladding to be fire-treated to Euroclass B-s1-d0 (s1 Smoke Production – d0 Flaming Droplets). This system is fully compatible with the Koppers MicroShades “Brunnea” treated cladding.
This significant project called for a high level of detail and the end result looks professional, modern and inviting to shoppers in the multi-million pound mixed-use scheme for Doncaster Council.
The new £7.7m retail park is a new destination where people can enjoy restaurants and leisure facilities next to the existing VUE cinema at the popular Lakeside in Doncaster.
The project features Europe’s first Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru , which is a massive coup for Doncaster. Founded in 1950, Dunkin’ is one of the world’s leading coffee and baked goods brands with more than 12,600 locations in 46 countries worldwide.
As well as Dunkin’ Donuts, it features a mix of local and national companies with Burger King, Costa Coffee, Creams Desserts, Estabulo Brazilian Restaurant, Taco Bell, TGI’s and Urban Burgers and Fries.
The highly sustainable scheme includes timber clad units, solar PV on the roofs, 5,000 plants and shrubs and 120 trees.
There are 181 parking spaces and nine electric car charging points (below), with the project delivering a significant annual return of about £750,000 to the council.
