Accoya was chosen for the refurbishment of a sustainably re-modernized family home in Scotland. Originally a 1930’s bungalow, the Edinburgh property was given a new lease of life after being extended using carbon friendly materials including Accoya.
Installed by MAKAR Construction, the Accoya sections were used to support an open plan kitchen and diner extension with an insulated zinc siding roof. Coated using Teknos, the extension faces south west in order to gather natural light and generate solar energy. The build has also doubled as an applied research project which undergraduate and postgraduate students have participated in via Edinburgh Napier University’s Institute for Sustainable Construction and COCIS.
Applications used in this project: Siding
