Eildon Housing Association, Tweedbank, UK
Twenty one new energy efficient homes featuring Accoya wood cladding were completed for Eildon Housing Association at Tweedbank, Melrose in the Scottish Borders in 2007. Eildon chose Accoya wood after learning of the product’s aesthetic and durable qualities. More than 11,000 linear metres was used, finished with a quality Sikkens coating by Environmental Coatings.
After more than three years in situ, there are no signs of wood or coating degradation and colour retention is excellent.
“We are delighted with the performance of Accoya, which reflects our commitment to increased sustainability levels and innovative technology.” Laurens Cox, Eildon Housing Association.
