Private residence, Mumbai, India
Accoya® wood has been used by one of India’s leading shipping companies to enhance the 16th and top floor of its prestigious downtown commercial building in Mumbai. It is located in the upscale Nariman Point business district, where visitors have a beautiful view over the Arabian Sea. The challenge was to construct a wooden floor which can stand over 2m of rain every year, meaning any material used must cope with significant levels of precipitation, as well as related drainage.
Furthermore, it was essential to create a marine atmosphere with a robust wooden deck and a steel railing so that visitors will feel as if they are boarding a ship. Accoya is the ultimate solution for this project. Kiran Kamath, Managing Director, Link Shipping Private Ltd. said “I was hesitant to use wood in a high humidity, high rainfall location like Mumbai, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the performance and look of Accoya’s decking solution”.
