Context

Ecochoice supplied the main structure of RNLI's Bembridge station on the Isle of Wight.

Products supplied

The structure was built using European Larch glulam, including all arches, beams and pilars - all cut and drilled according to drawings and FSC certified.

The exterior cladding was in Siberian larch, also FSC certified, but treated with fire prevention salts.

The internal roof decks were supplied in PEFC certified Spruce, cut and planed to a double groove profile.

Comment

“This building is unique amongst the new generation of RNLI boat houses in that its frame and cladding are made completely of timber. All timber used complies with BAM Nuttall sustainability policy and ISO14001” BAM
