ASDA Supermarket – Barrhead

THE CHALLENGE

The designers were looking for a natural material that blended in with the surrounding area and would keep its natural colour longer than traditional timber. Careful consideration was given to ongoing maintenance and uniformity of colour over all the Elevations.

THE SOLUTION

This Asda projects used our Unsorted Grade material, with a section size Ex 50 x 50mm. The material for the whole project was only in 2 finished sizes, the backing structure battens with a chamfered edge to allow the water to run off at 45 x 45mm. The cladding itself was created with a finishing size of 42 x 42mm, secretly fixed into cassettes before installation.

NORclad MicroShades “Brunnea” timber cladding were selected based sustainability, a 30 year Osmose treatment warranty against rot and fungal (out of ground contact) with little or no maintenance required, and other important considerations such as cost, ease of installation.
