JOHN BRASH CLADDING IS TOP OF THE CLASS

John Brash has supplied its Western Red Cedar cladding to the new Educational Village in Gainsborough, which is aimed at improving the learning opportunities for pupils, as well as the general community, around Gainsborough.

A ‘Building Schools for the Future’ project, the development consists of two purpose-built schools and will combine all secondary aged pupils from four schools in the area on a single site. It includes a new 11-16 secondary mainstream academy school and a new 11-19 secondary special education needs (SEN) school.

Over 5,600 linear metres of John Brash Western Red Cedar shiplap cladding have been provided for the externals of both buildings. The cladding was fitted by specialist roofing company Watershed Roofing Ltd, based in Bradford.

When the school opens in September 2009, it is envisaged that it will achieve BREEAM Education ‘Very Good’ rating. BREEAM is the Environmental Assessment Method developed by the BRE (Building Research Establishment), which assesses the environmental performance and sustainability of buildings. The BREEAM assessment awards a higher rating for materials with a low embodied energy and Western Red Cedar recently achieved an 'A' rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification, mainly because of this characteristic.

Embodied energy measures the amount of fossil fuel used to produce, process and transport a given material. Timber has one of the lowest embodied energy contents of any building material and once fitted is also an excellent natural insulator.

Richard Gee, principal architect on this project, explains: “We chose Western Red Cedar cladding because it is a truly sustainable material that will help create thermally efficient and comfortable classrooms. Visually, it is also in keeping with the semi-rural surroundings, which was a key consideration on this project.”

Western Red Cedar is highly durable and resistant to decay, giving an anticipated 60 year service life without the need for preservative treatments if sapwood is excluded (as in BS 5589). It is a very stable, low movement, lightweight timber with a straight grained. It comes in a range of colours from chocolate brown to salmon pink, that weather over time to an attractive silver grey colour.

As well as John Brash Western Red Cedar cladding, Gainsborough Educational Village has a variety of other sustainable elements including ground source heat pumps, rainwater harvesting and part bio-mass boilers, which operate using short rotation coppicing of trees in the area.

Christian Brash, Managing Director at John Brash, explains: “We were delighted to supply our cladding to an educational village that is so close to where we are based. It will benefit the local community enormously and we are proud to be associated with it.”

All John Brash timbers are sourced from renewable and environmentally well-managed sources with most either FSC or PEFC certified.
