Accoya® chosen for luxury London development

03 Apr 17

Accoya, the world-leading modified wood, has been chosen for the windows and doors of 10 high end town houses in St. John’s Wood in London.

Accoya was chosen for the windows, doors and French doors of the luxury apartments at the Hamilton Drive development, which comprises 70,000 sq ft of luxury housing. Located near to Abbey Road, the Hamilton Drive scheme is being delivered jointly by Sidra Capital and Dwyer Property.

Manufactured and supplied by SB Joinery, Accoya was selected for the windows and doors due to its unrivalled stability, thermal properties and unique 50-year guarantee, Accoya is made to last and is one of the most durable and stable wood products on the market.

Designed by Robert Adam, internationally acknowledged as a leader in the field of traditional and classical architecture, the site’s design includes two basement levels with gyms and cinemas, as well as a standalone villa with a single story basement and a swimming pool.

The scheme is currently under construction by the Carey Group under a design and build contract. Byrne Looby is the structural designer for permanent and temporary works.

Accoya was also chosen because it’s the ideal wood for the production of bespoke, classic or contemporary wooden windows and doors. Thanks to simple ease of use, tailoring the shape and finish of bespoke joinery is efficient and reliable.

Laura Keily, head of marketing for Accsys, commented: “The apartments being delivered in St. Johns Wood are of the very highest specification. With that in mind, it makes perfect sense that its developers specified a high quality, durable wood product like Accoya to construct the windows, doors and French doors. Accoya is 100% non-toxic and made using FSC timber. Boasting a host of environmental certificates, those looking to upgrade their homes should look no further than Accoya if they want environmentally-friendly, quality and long lasting windows and doors.”

Manufactured using a proprietary acetylation process, Accoya is one of the most superior wood products on the market today. It performs to the highest of standards, delivering remarkable levels of stability, sustainability and durability. Exceeding the high quality and aesthetic attributes of tropical hardwoods, Accoya also boasts excellent environmental credentials by using wood sourced from FSC® certified, sustainable forests and Cradle to Cradle Gold certified.

Easy to maintain, coatings last up to two times longer with Accoya than when applied to traditional wood products. The high performance wood is also easier to coat with less preparation and sanding time required. This ease of use is down to Accoya’s stability and its stronger structure.
