Waitrose – Saffron Walden
Project: Waitrose, Saffron Walden
Architects: B + R Archcitects
Main Contractor: R G Carter
Timber Cladding: Canadian Western Red Cedar
Coating: All of the timber supplied to the site was pre-coated by NORclad in house, to Euroclass B / Class O.
The customer has then applied a stain on site over the top of this.
Profiles: The majority of the product used was the NWC2 profiles, with nearly 6000/LM being delivered to site. This profile is an open Square Joint, allowing ease of installation, and a consistent shadow gap. Over 4000/LM of PSE boards were also used on this project, ranging from Ex 50 x 50mm, and Ex 50 x 100mm, to larger Ex 50 x 125mm for handrail items around the site. A large quantity of 38 x 50mm regularised batten was also provided, all once again coated to Euroclass B.
