Dura Cladding adding value at Lanswoodpark

By Stuart Burns July 17, 2012

We’ve teamed up with fellow Essex firm Lanswood Ltd to help build Lanswoodpark – the perfect example of a truly sustainable business park.

Our 87% recycled timber composite product Dura Cladding is a main feature of the project, which has recently reached phase one completion in the shape of a two-storey office development at Elmstead Market, near Colchester.

Dura Cladding will also feature on the offices, restaurants and retail units planned for phase two of the development, which has been designed to be as sustainable and environmentally-sound as possible.

We’re obviously very proud to be supplying such an eco-friendly project, but the sustainable credentials of Dura Cladding made our product the obvious choice for Lanswood Ltd too.

As their MD, Darin Shaikly, told me: “The use of high-end, eco-friendly and sustainable building materials has been at the heart of this project right from the very beginning. That’s why we were so pleased to hear about Dura Composites and team  up with a local supplier with such world-leading sustainability credentials right on our doorstep.

“We were originally planning to use wood cladding boards, but once we became aware of the benefits of Dura Cladding it was the obvious choice. The fact that Dura Cladding does not suffer from colour fade like wood made it a natural choice over timber for a phased project like this. Dura Cladding is an exceptional product that will serve Lanswoodpark well for many years to come.”

I couldn’t have put it better myself!

Other features at Lanswoodpark include CAT5 wiring, 24-hour CCTV monitoring, LED lighting wiring for alarms, air sourced temperature control, high-speed internet (37Mb download/8Mb upload), extensive countryside views and ample parking.
