A Bespoke Cladding System for The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, Wallingford

Project: The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, Wallingford

Architect: RH Partnership

Specialist Contractor: ECL Contracts


The centre for ecology and hydrology (CEH) is the UK’s centre of excellence for land and freshwater science.

As part of a £50 million restructuring programme, NVELOPE’s ‘intelligent’ cladding support system has been specified.

The new laboratory building aims to be sustainable and comply with the highest environmental standards and has received an excellent BRE (building research establishment) rating for its design and construction elements.

The building was clad in a renewable material, western red cedar which is naturally resistant to decay and insect attack, offers superior acoustic qualities and is an excellent material for thermal insulation.

to hold the cladding firmly in place and create a robust shell, NV6 NVELOPE cladding support system was specified. the NVELOPE carriers enable the easy application of timber battens on to which the cladding can be fixed.
