More than 2,000 sheets of Norbords 1 1mm Sterling OSB 3 have been supplied for the structural timber frame of a new grammar school in Kirkwall, Orkney.
Oriented Strand Board is made at Norbords Inverness factory from wood grown in sustainably managed Scottish forests, and was supplied to design-build contractor Morrison Construction via the Orkney branch of Jewson.
The design incorporates timber frame throughout and incorporates copper cladding, natural stone, render and glass facades under a standing seam metal roof.
This is by far the largest timber frame building I ve seen here on Orkney said Brian Kynoch, manager of Jewsons Kirkwall branch. We supplied an initial order for 1 ,476 sheets of OSB and started shipping in January 201 2. We then received an order for a further 738 sheets which were delivered in February.
