Timber Cladding - The Sustainable Choice!

WMS were recently set a challenge by one of their long standing surveyor clients, “lets give this building a new lease of life!” and we think we may just have done it! WMS Contracts Manager Steve Fox explains “we were called in not to just only improve the dated appearance of the building (which serves as classrooms and dining hall of the local primary school) but also to improve its insulation credentials. Tests revealed the presence of asbestos within some areas which was subsequently removed and disposed of safely by specialist contractors prior to works starting. We then stripped the building of the original timber cladding before recycling it appropriately, repaired any timber battening etc, fitted appropriate insulation as specified before fixing he beautiful Siberian larch timber boards.” Completed ahead of programme the works appear to have had the desired effect! The headmaster Tim said “the children love it, there is a feel enthusiasm from everyone using the building now, it’s amazing!” Steve then went on to say “the cladding works were only one element of this project, we’ve also completed lighting works and pipework adaptations.”

We are sure you’ll agree timber always looks great in construction, wood for good!
