Project: Tinsley Meadows School

Project Completion: 2017

Architect: Bond Bryan (Images kindly provided by Bond Bryan)

Product: NORclad European Redwood – A-Grade

Treatment: European Redwood (Brunnea Treated)

A specification was created utilising a PEFC-certified NORclad European Redwood in A Grade.

NORclad “Brunnea” treatment  offers 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.

This project comprised the remodelling of an existing Community Centre, and a large new extension to form a new school – Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy.

The project achieved BREEAM ‘Very Good’ accreditation, including the installation of PV panels on the existing building, with the external walls of the new building being highly insulated to provide a very good ‘U’ value. The external wall construction comprises of metal framework, insulated composite cladding panels finished with the Brunnea treated Redwood.

NORclad supplied over 14,000/LM of NWC2 profile cladding for this project, with all associated structural battens for installation. Battens received the same high pressure Brunnea treatment as the cladding.
