Accoya selected for the Bradford Royal Infirmary


United Kingdom

Accoya was selected as the ideal material to clad the new research building for the Bradford Institute for Health. BIHR had a clear vision for their medical research building, wanting it to act as a beacon for the world-leading research undertaken as well as provide a welcoming and stimulating environment for the staff and patients.

Accoya was chosen as the perfect material as the project required a striking facade that complimented the existing traditional stone Temple Bank House. The Accoya cladding was coated using Sikkens Joo6T Light Oak. Accoya was also selected due to the fact it is low maintenance and provides warmth and natural textures.

15mm planks were chosen for the cladding to ensure minimum wastage in the manufacturing making it as cost effective as possible. The client was very impressed with how well the cladding cloaks, shields and invites, addressing the road facing elevations and drawing the occupants around the building to its entrance which sits in relief. The act of curving this facade into one, around the building merges the South and East elevations to form one long ribbon element, perfect for the shape of the building.
