Products used Frake timber cladding
 
 

FSC-certified Frake West African hardwood cladding from Ecochoice was selected for the exterior of a RIBA award-winning swimming pool project at Alfriston School in East Sussex.

The project used 18x140mm PAR boards which were pre-assembled as panels off-site. For safety reasons, they were also fire-treated (due to its increased porosity, Frake takes up the fire-retardant treatment really well).

Architects Duggan Morris paid close attention to the surrounding environment as well as to minute detailing, achieving a great blend of form and purpose at the all-girls school.
