Project Details

Sweet Chestnut
Breather Membrane
FSC Certified
Class 0 SSF

Completed in 2014, Barclays Primary School was built by Wates Construction and designed by Bond Bryan Architects. Located on a Brownfield Site in the centre of Waltham Forest, the two storey, two entry school is made up of a nursery, fourteen classrooms, a school hall, a kitchen and reception area and administrative offices.

BCL were tasked with the supply and fit of the external wood cladding panels for the school. Using Sweet Chestnut pre-fabricated 100 x 25 mm panels, the system spans over 415 m2 of the building. The timber cladding panels are fitted over a breather membrane using BCL’s secret fixings to ensure a smooth contemporary look and allowing the system to be fully demountable. All of the wood panels have been treated with a 3 coat fire protection lacquer without needing maintenance. We are proud to have been involved in such an important new education facility.
