A cladding envelope which withstands the toughest elements
Engineered with exacting precision to withstand the harshest Alaskan elements; when architects Workshop AD sought a cladding solution for this extensive renovation project, the search was not without its challenges.
There were numerous technical conundrums in the first instance due to a deteriorating underlying structure which had been exposed for a significant period of time to the arduous weather conditions of Alaska. Once a thorough structural investigation had been conducted it was discovered that a number of the underlying steel beams needed to be replaced or reinforced. Furthermore, much of the engineered lumber had also degraded over time.
Resistant & durable cladding envelopes
Workshop AD’s project team carefully re-engineered and ultimately specified a building envelope that would counteract all of these environmental pressures and tick demanding aesthetic and functionality requirements too.
Parklex’s timber veneer exterior panels exude warmth and charm, boasting the subtle and intriguing nuances of real wood. Each walnut veneer panel offers something unique and this is something which is also echoed in the interior.
Unique & authentic wood cladding – more about Parklex timber panels
Encapsulating the natural beauty of wood, Parklex exterior wood cladding panels create an individual timber finish.
Created from a kraft paper core, and real timber veneer which is then set using a resin encapsulation process, Parklex panels are pressed under extreme pressure and heat, allowing this timber facade to retain its depth of colour regardless of weather conditions.
Parklex Everlook® is integrated into the panel to prolong its lifespan and to enhance both its natural hues and resistance to UV rays.
Parklex offers the natural beauty of real wood combined with modern technology to deliver the perfect building envelope.
