Fort Kinnaird Retail Park – Edinburgh

THE CHALLENGE

A new development of retail outlets to an existing retail park, as the main structure was constructed using SIPS Panels, the design team were looking for a façade that was natural, required no maintenance and differentiated it from other parts of the Retail Park.

THE SOLUTION

Parklex timber cladding was chosen as each panel is manufactured with unique natural timber veneer, each with its own grain and direction, which gives the elevation an individual look and feel. With its unique Anti-Graffiti Coating, Parklex is colour stable and UV resistant it eliminates the need for any ongoing maintenance.

Installed using the Sikatak Panel adhesive system, fixed back to aluminium battens, the aesthetic advantage of a secret fix installation was maintained whilst reducing the installation costs typically associated with mechanical secret fix. Completed July 2014.
