International Timber recently supplied Siberian Larch cladding to the Prince’s Foundation for the construction of the Braemar Highland Games Centre.
Vertical timber cladding was used for the project, factory painted in a green satin with decorative features and trims as well as a textured skim coat plaster finish.
The cladding also has a vapour control layer – also known as a vapour control barrier – which is a layer of material that prevents the movement of water vapour into the building structure. This helps prevent the development of mould, damp or rot – a perfect long-term cladding solution.
The Centre consists of an exhibition hall, gallery, archive, café and shop. The exhibition explores the living traditions of the Highland games, focusing on the Braemar Gathering – and its long-standing royal connections.
The building was completed in August 2018 and unveiled by Her Majesty The Queen in September 2018. The building is named in honour of HRH Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay, a keen supporter of the project through his charity The Prince’s Foundation.
