Timber ElementsExterior rain-screen cladding
This school and health centre was opened in 2001. The structure is of steel and concrete but the building is particularly notable as an early use of larch rainscreen cladding in the UK.
Three external elevations are finished with vertically-boarded cladding in homegrown European larch and the fourth with high performance aluminium-faced timber windows.
