Based in the Netherlands ECOstyle is a major player in environmentally focused products in a wide range of soil, plant and animal markets across Europe. When it came to designing their new head office and warehouse in Oosterwolde, ECOstyle also made sure the environmental aspects of the building were top of their requirement list. This has been recognized with the 2016 BREEAM Outstanding award for the most sustainable industrial building in Europe.
WaxedWood Gold preservative treated timbers supplied by Foreco were used throughout the building and added to the environmental credentials. Around 55m3 of FSC® certified Siberian larch was pressure treated and supplied by Foreco for use as interior and exterior claddings and facades as well as central support columns to the laminated beams within the warehouse.
