Accoya was chosen for the refurbishment of a sustainably re-modernized family home in Scotland. Originally a 1930’s bungalow, the Edinburgh property was given a new lease of life after being extended using carbon friendly materials including Accoya.
Installed by MAKAR Construction, the Accoya sections were used to support an open plan kitchen and diner extension with an insulated zinc cladding roof. Coated using Teknos, the extension faces south west in order to gather natural light and generate solar energy. The build has also doubled as an applied research project which undergraduate and postgraduate students have participated in via Edinburgh Napier University’s Institute for Sustainable Construction and COCIS.
for generations to come
Your exterior wood cladding needs to weather any storm, in style. We know that aesthetics, low maintenance and durability are crucial. What you may not know is that Accoya out-performs even the most durable tropical hardwood cladding.
By combining superior stability and durability with the beauty of natural wood, you can achieve the look and the performance you want from your timber cladding. Not to mention Accoya’s world-leading sustainability credentials.
in environment, time and design
Exterior timber cladding has to withstand any weather. Resistant to rotting, Accoya cladding is likely to stay free of any visible distortion over its lifetime – which means fewer call backs than typical wood cladding. A cost-effective choice for lasting performance.
