Opened by Mayor Christine Sagen Helgø, the new skate park includes an Accoya bench 110 metres long.
Accoya was chosen due to its environmental credentials and its durable properties. Left uncoated, the Accoya bench was CNC’d, milled and planed and the entire bench was prefabricated in modules which were then predrilled to ensure it could easily be attached to the concrete blocks.
Accoya was also selected due to its growing demand in applications such as cladding and terraces in and around the area. This is due to its durable abilities, making it the ideal material for the extreme wind and wet weather conditions present along the Norwegian coastline.
