High-performance sustainable wood product Accoya took the title of Best Cladding Product at the 2017 Build It Awards, where it was recognised for its advanced levels of durability and stability in comparison to other timber products.
Accoya is ideal for demanding external applications such as cladding due to its hardwearing and versatile properties and it requires little maintenance, while also boasting a rot resistance of class 1, the highest level.
Derived from fast-growing FSC-certified sources, the sustainable product has just retained the Cradle to Cradle Gold certification for the seventh year running.
“We are delighted to have collected the Best Cladding award at the renowned Build It Awards,” said Laura Kelly, head of marketing for Accsys Group. “It is an honour to have been recognised amongst fellow industry peers for Accoya’s innovation and superiority within cladding projects.
“To have been acknowledged and identified for excellence within cladding highlights the importance of quality and sustainability, which homeowners, architects and people within the industry desire.”
The Build It Awards, conducted in association with BuildStore, highlight the very best in architecture, design and material performance within the industry, recognising excellence and knowledge amongst architects, designers and joiners.
This year’s event was held at the Hilton Bankside and was hosted by comedian Marcus Brigstocke.
