Sainsbury’s Supermarket – Carlisle

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

Brunnea Treated Western Cedar timber cladding was chosen for this project as it offered a durable cladding with a 30 year Osmose treatment warranty against rot and fungal (out of ground contact) with little or no ongoing maintenance. Cost and ease of installation was another important factor.
