The study outlines the development of timber cladding in Scotland, describes timber clad buildings in Scotland, and provides practical information on the use of timber cladding in Scotland.
The increasing popularity of external timber cladding in Scotland has created a need for accurate historical and technical information specifically relevant to Scottish conditions, and the Scottish Executive has commissioned Timber Cladding in Scotland to provide an invaluable reference for policy makers, architects, engineers, self-builders, planning and building control officers, contractors and cladding manufacturers.
External timber cladding offers a unique combination of environmental, social and economic benefits of value to Scotland's built environment, and planning and building control systems are increasingly sympathetic to its use. The technical risks of using timber cladding in Scotland's exposed maritime climate are manageable and no greater than in similar climates, such as the western coastal zones of Norway and Canada, where external timber cladding is widespread. There is also evidence of strong historical precedents for external timber cladding throughout urban and rural Scotland.
