The development consists of 462 apartments and around 85,000 sq ft of retail space, in 5 separate buildings ranging from 5 to 7 storeys high.
The architects specified the use of Thermowood cladding timbers to provide a stunning and natural contrast to the exterior masonary walls of the buildings.
Around 100 cubic metres of Non-Com Exterior treated Thermowood supplied by Arnold Laver was used as exterior cladding on the roof apartment facades as well as a feature within the balcony areas of the lower storey apartments.
The leach resistant Non-Com Exterior treatment provides a long term fire protection of the Thermowood claddings without the need for any on-going maintenance.
The Capitol Way, Colindale project won the award for 'Fire Retardant Treated Project of the Year' at the Wood Protection Association Awards Dinner, held in Derby in April 2016.
