Sustainable Building for Dean Field Studies Centre

HomeNewsSustainable Building for Dean Field Studies Centre

Cabinco have been engaged by Bristol City Council to manufacture, supply and install a new machine profile log classroom and ancillary timber laboratory workshop.  This exciting addition to the Deanfield centre resources will be constructed almost entirely from timber and supplied by local company Cabinco of Monmouth.

Externally it will be clad in Siberian Larch which is selected for its sustainability and durability without any need for preservative treatment.  All timbers are to be FSC/PEFC certified in accordance with the environmental focus at Deanfield.  Even the roofing is green!  Wildflower turf will adorn the entire roofing area and provide a varied habitat that can increase the abundance of wild birds and insects which will feed off the flowers and grasses there.
