Accoya® wood cladding specified for new Belgium hospital construction

The University Hospital Saint Luc located in Woluwe in Belgium opted for Accoya® cladding for the construction of a new wing and a bicycle parking facility.

Jean Pierre Noël, Managing Director of Hout van Steenberge, distributor of Accoya® wood in Belgium stated that the architectural firm Modulo Architects chose Accoya® for two reasons. The guarantee of 50 years above ground and 25 years in ground and the benefit of low maintenance requirement when Accoya® wood is used was appealing.

72m3 of 25mm x 100mm & 25mm x 150 mm of planed Accoya® wood was placed on the upper part of the building giving a modern, natural look on the exterior.
