1Organic timber cladding reflects the symbolism of the circle of lifeThe organic timber cladding created by the A. Proctor Group was chosen to complement the natural surroundings provided by Station Wood near Crathes and achieve the curves and fluidity which were a key element of the building’s design.

Specified for its low maintenance regime and longevity, Canjaere was chosen in a golden colourway and installed by the principal contractor Bancon Construction.

Canjaere timber is treated with a unique process to protect the wood against moisture and preserve the finished look, backed by a 30-year maintenance warranty against rot and decay.
