Lindrick Eco Build, which specialises in energy efficient off-site housebuilding, has used Norbord’s CaberDek and SterlingOSB Zero on a project in Doncaster, Yorkshire. The new house has been built for a couple who are approaching retirement and wanted to embrace the joys of life in a sustainable home which overlooks Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
The 400 sq. m. new home, which will include views of the polar bear enclosure at the park, solar panels, mechanical ventilation and renewable technology, has been built using only the very best sustainable materials. Lindrick Eco Build prides itself on using the highest quality products, from companies that consider the environmental impact, to produce the highest quality home, and so Norbord’s renowned products were chosen. The SterlingOSB Zero timber frame kit enabled the structure of the house to be developed off-site, while CaberDek ensured that construction on-site continued – even with the bad British weather thanks to its weather-resistant properties which provide protection from dirt and rain for up to 42 days.
Paul Scholey, Business Development Director at Lindrick Eco Build, commented, “When it comes to building a house of a certain quality, you need products of the same quality to match that. We know Norbord’s CaberDek works well, cuts nicely, fits together tightly and is easy to use. It was also important to us to use products with traceability. With Norbord’s SterlingOSB Zero and CaberDek, we know they are FSC certified and so were ideal for use in constructing a sustainable home. It was a win, win.”
